bug#17467: 24.3; locate-library returning spurious path

You are right, I had my ~/.emacs.d in the load-path. I removed it as my first step to resolve this issue, but then I thought that even if it were in the load-path, returning the path to a file without a valid library extension is an unexpected behavior for locate-library.

I assume there are some typos there...

Anyway, sounds like you have your ~/.emacs.d directory in load-path?
You are strongly encouraged not to do that.
Newer Emacs will in fact warn you about it.
Because you can get problems just like this one! :)
