OK ... the hidden directories do work now ... but in the test suite
of sed the test case sed-4.7/testsuite/subst-mb-incomplete.sh with

 print_ver_ sed

 require_en_utf8_locale_

 echo > in || framework_failure_
 printf '\233\375\200\n' > exp-out || framework_failure_

 LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 sed $(printf 's/^/\\L\233\375\\\200/') in > out 2> err

 compare exp-out out || fail=1
 compare /dev/null err || fail=1

 Exit $fail

does fail (YaOB).
