Okay...  I'll admit that, when I first saw that M-G .. <Enter> didn't
highlight the originating directory, I thought:  Hm!  Unexpected.

So... I'll accept M-G .. <Enter> highlighting its rabbit hole, but only
if the user types exactly .. <Enter>, not anything else -- not ../, not
../., not ./.. nor ../../.., nothing.  Only M-G dot dot Enter.  This will
allow the user to suppress the highlighting by typing dot dot slash, for
example.  And for multilevel jumps, there will be no highlighting.

If you can live with that, please provide an adapted patch.
