I just wondered if you were aware of it.  As your log shows,
you have not fixed it in the way the report indicates, but avoided it
by making "" an invalid argument (at resolve time) where we want it
to behave like ".".  Even if EINVAL were what we wanted, we'd need the
corresponding change to prevent creation of such links in the first place
(but I think just treating them like a link to "." is okay).
