  | How can an easy update to clarify message "No such file or directory" 
  | introduce a bug?

That's easy ... because it is not just that one message, you change that
to "no directory" (or something) in the case of the cd command, then someone
has to come along and produce the Polish, French, Mandarin, Tagalog, Malay,
Afrikaans, Spanish, Thai, .... versions of that new message, and it is
entirely possible that one or more or those won't end up saying exactly
what it should say.   A bug...

The sys_errlist[] messages are translated already, and widely used, so
any errors in those translations should have already been found and fixed.
