It is true for every version of mathematica that I know of. But with the 
default settings ".", representing the current directory, is contained 
within $Path. So if that entry isn't deleted, SetDirectory will help, as 
you have observed. If you delete "." from $Path, SetDirectory will not 
help at all. Try your tests after doing this to see yourself:

$Path = DeleteCases[$Path, "."]
