Sorry, but I've only read this bug report quickly - no time now.
If you are suggesting that when DIR-OR-LIST is a cons the
file names shown should be relative then I think I disagree
The typical use case for a cons DIR-OR-LIST is a list
of files from anywhere, in which case absolute file
names are appropriate.
Again, sorry if I've read too quickly and misunderstood.
