Bug Description

When I do:

cd wallpapers
pcmanfm -w pattern.jpg || echo false

nothing happens to the wallpaper, and there is no "false" printed. However, it's OK if I give it the full path:

pcmanfm -w "$(pwd)/pattern.jpg"

but there is nothing in the "pcmanfm --help" text to warn that full path is required.
