If monotone is reading a file '' out of the current working
directory and trying to execute it, then that is definitely a bug, but
it seems like a... really unlikely one.

Need more details to tell what's going on.  Possibly you're on a
system that searches the current directory for executables, and
searches for executables with extra extensions appended?  (E.g., I
think you can tell windows to treat files like foo.exe files,
i.e., both executable by running "foo".)

So let us espouse a less contested notion of truth and falsehood, even
if it is philosophically debatable (if we listen to philosophers, we
must debate everything, and there would be no end to the discussion).
