OK.  I finally had some time to look at this.

The issue is that you can't always add a null placeholder for the current
directory (the original bash-4.0 code) or never add one (patch 24).  You
have to add one in certain circumstances, when it gets handled later in
the process.

Try the attached patch.  It undoes portions of patch 24 and uses a
different scheme to figure out when to add the null placeholder.  It
seems to work for all cases without any regressions.
