I agree it would be nice to avoid creating directories that are not actually
needed; still, this is a low-priority bug, and I'm not yet sure how difficult
it would be to fix.  For the moment, I've committed (in your name) the test
case you've sent us (with minor tweakings), so that the bug will at least
remain exposed in the testsuite.  Attached is the patch I've pushed (to maint).
