Um, well, the behavior you see is certainly inconsistent.  But one
problem here is that the user-level behavior is *always* supposed to
be to entirely ignore trailing slashes, according to Posix, IIRC.

The semantics of dir_lookup are different from that, and I don't know
the details about which library changes you might or might not have on
your system.  It's possible that the current sources have no actual
bug at all.
