It seems that subtracting 1 from the directory index was wrong after all:

>From section of the dwarf 3 standard document:
"The directory index represents an entry in the include_directories
section of the line
number program header. The index is LEB128(0) if the file was found in
the current
directory of the compilation, LEB128(1) if it was found in the first
directory in the
include_directories section, and so on. The directory index is ignored
for file names that
represent full path names."

So 0 means the compilation directory and directory indices start counting at 1.

I think I got it right this time
