Ah, right.

Right.  Stefan, in short -- the thing we're wondering is whether this is

(read-file-name-internal "~/foo/~man" nil t)
=> (#("/foo/~man/" 0 9 (face completions-common-part)))

(read-file-name-internal "./foo/~man" nil t)
=> (#("man/" 0 3 (face completions-common-part)))

I'd kinda expect both to give the same result (i.e., the latter result)?

(And "man" is a valid user in this scenario.)
