As a i3 user, I do not really use tmux or urxvt-tabbed anymore to manage my tabs.
But I really miss the fact that tmux open a new shell on the same directory as the previous one.
To emulate this feature, I wrote a simple C program which print the current working directory of the focused window so you can do things like that:
urxvt -cd `xcwd`
There is no proper way to get the working directory of a window, so it uses many tricks and may not give you the path you want on every applications.
Anyway, it seems to work in most cases unless your terminal contains a tab manager (tmux, screen, urxvt-tabbed).
Since there is a lot of tiling-wm users here, I think this might interest some of you.
For your tmux.conf:
bind . neww -c ''
EDIT: Ah nvm, I thought you wanted that for tmux too. But it's default there now.

Any chance you'll make a PKGBUILD / submit to AUR?
I will do it soon.
With -Werror, make fails with the most current version on git.
This issue is now fixed.
