clangd-indexer does not seem to handle compile_commands.json with different
directories. I am able to workaround the problem by passing '

It seems to work ok with a single directory (i.e with just 'abc' from the
example below), but fails if there are multiple, as in the example below.
I am working with revision 356635 of clangd.

With a directory structure of:


And a compile_commands.json of:

        "arguments": [
        "directory": "/home/test/abc",
        "file": "test.cc"
        "arguments": [
        "directory": "/home/test/def",
        "file": "xtest.cc"

I receive the error:

[test]$ clangd-indexer -executor=all-TUs compile_commands.json  > clangd.dex
[1/2] Processing file /home/test/abc/test.cc
[2/2] Processing file /home/test/def/xtest.cc
error: no such file or directory: 'test.cc'
error: no input files
error: unable to handle compilation, expected exactly one compiler job in ''
Error while processing /home/test/abc/test.cc.
Failed to run action on /home/test/abc/test.cc

I assume it may be related to a non-thread-safe chdir somewhere in the code.
