The first step of converting a POSIX path to a Windows path is to
normalize the path. "." and ".." components are simply dropped:
"a/b/./c" -> "a\b\c"
"a/b/../c" -> "a\c"

noticing it as a bug, having taken it as some spurious glitch...)
(Not sure whether this case is covered by further arguments in this thread)
