PR posted with the change to use an absolute path for the starting working directory in the "-m" case.

That PR also includes a change to improve the fidelity of the test suite: back when I first wrote test_cmd_line_script, I was mainly focused on testing the runpy aspects, and not the sys.path initialisation aspects, so the way the tests worked didn't really check the latter properly.

The test updates get rid of the launch script that was previously confusing matters, and instead test sys.path[0] initialisation properly (relying on `PYTHONPATH` for the zipimport related cases where just changing the working directory isn't sufficient).
