Bash Version: 2.05a
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:
        At the bash command prompt:
                cd c:/
                test -d ..
        returns 0.  I think this is wrong.
        /bin/test behaves the same.
        Also:
                cd /
                test -d ..
        returns 0.  Under Cygwin, this is debatable.  I dunno...
        Note also that:
                cd c:/
                cd ..
        returns 0, but the last cd did nothing.  Doesn't seem right.

Repeat-By:
        See description.

Fix:
