All functions dealing with directory names are broken in various ways;
even (especially) the native/proprietary ones. It's not so much that
appending a '\' breaks it. It's that appending a '\' breaks one
function and failing to append a '\' breaks another function.
stat() is causing the most obvious errors, though. stat() fails on a
directory name with a trailing '\' or '/'.
