With "." in sys.path the "__file__" attribute will be a relative path, and therefore cannot be used after "chdir".

This likely affects relative paths in general, but have not tested it.

```
import os
import sys

sys.path.insert(0, '.')

# Importing it before chdir already causes failure.
import imported

os.chdir('/')
print(imported.__file__)  # ./imported.py
assert imported.__file__ == os.path.abspath(imported.__file__)
```

It works for "" in sys.path (https://bugs.python.org/issue18416).
