Looks like somehow we call find_directory with a list of directories
from VPATH or vpath.  If you can find which function issues such a
strange call, please tell.  Failing that, I will take a look soon, as
this sounds like some bug: it's clear that the call to stat in
find_directory will always fail for such "file names", so there's no
point in making such calls.

Thanks again for your efforts.  We are getting close to the solution.
