      It's been a while since I wrote this, so I don't remember off-hand
      what all the format specifiers mean, but this 'statusline' looks
      like the default 'statusline' with 'ruler' set and with the addition
      of the name of the current function displayed at the right side of
      the status line, just left of the line and column numbers. The
      function name--the return value of TagName()--does not shift when
      the line and column numbers change. You should be able to replace
      TagName() with a function that returns the cwd and get the behavior
      you want.

      let &statusline='%<%f %(%h%m%r %)%=%{TagName()} %-15.15(%l,%c%V%)%P'

      Regards,
