Can relative dirs be used in CREATE DIRECTORY?

Hey all,

The subject about says it all. The SQL Reference docs (10.1 - 11.1) for CREATE DIRECTORY show this example:

CREATE DIRECTORY admin AS 'oracle/admin';

...which implies a relative directory of "." in Unix. But where would that directory have to be created on the filesystem? I haven't been able to find this through trial and error and I'm not sure how one would attempt to trace this via strace, truss, etc.

My goal is to have changes in the filesystem automagically reflected in the Oracle directory object without me having to rememeber to reissue the CREATE DIRECTORY command manually on all databases.
