I made modifications as per Martin's suggestions:
1.) free pathv on "abort".
2.) allocate memory for storing the "cwd" string, and then copy it into the memory location (to make sure that the contents of the pathv array don't refer to memory that's from the stack of the procedure that created it.)

Not exactly. Now it is indented incorrectly.
Agreed. Really revert.

I prefer to write simpler code that works with both signed and unsigned

Christos' suggestion looks pretty good.
As Mark noted, need to add missing free of pathv itself.

You are still using the "./" string literal constant in the code so you'll
end up freeing it (the compiler will prolly merge the two instances and
you'll get lucky but it is semantically incorrect).
pathv[i] = cwd;
