Yes, is there some way we can give an award for "Best Coreutils Bug
Report of the Year"?  So far I'd vote for this one.  Very impressive.
Thanks again.

It does lead me to wonder whether there are similar circularity issues
elsewhere.  For example, is it OK that canonicalize_file_name will
mess up if someone is deleting and recreating directories, under the
assumption that canonicalizing has undefined behavior anyway if the
file system is mutating out from under you?
