It’s actually all the same bug. Paul’s change made file-directory-p
use file-accessible-directory-p, and it’s playing up.

It looks like the root cause is faccessat returning 0 for
‘/usr/bin/true/.’ when it should probably be returning -1.


Good catch! Probably the bug was then introduced in 2012 with commit 73dcdb9f30cb94a3183db54d9b463370c3978d4d.
