normalize-pathname doesn't really know about the "type" of filesystem
objects (regular file, directory etc.) represented by the given strings.
It only blindly operates on strings.

I think "tmp", "/tmp", "/tmp/" and "tmp/" are all normalized paths, so
normalize-pathname just return them as they are given.

Best wishes.
