That just doesn't make sense.  It neglects "~".  IMHO, a filename
such as "~/../bla" makes perfect sense, and I think that "~" should
be expanded first, before processing "..".

What do you think?

I see your point. I did not take "~" into consideration. Clearly "~"
should be processed before ".."'s and the file handler should process
I my opinion that means that everyting after "/foo:" should be handled
as something on the remote machine. I.e. "/foo:/.." should expand to
"/foo:/" and not to "/". And file-relative-name should return an absolute
name when FILENAME and DIRECTORY are on different machines.
