Force monitors to write to current working directory

Currently, Fluent sets the surface- and volume-monitor save path to be that of the working directory at the time the monitor is defined. Later simulations in other directories may fail because of permission issues (for instance, when a new user runs the same case). Similar behavior is observed in Fluent 6.0 autosave.
To ensure that files are written in the current working directory, set the filename to ./filename (e.g., ./monitor-1.out). Alternately, files can be written to a directory relative to the current working directory (example ./monitors/monitor-1.out), although you must ensure the specified directory exists before iterating.
