    The [file] commands that talk to the OS (e.g. [file mtime]) start off being able to handle paths which enter and leave a VFS mount (e.g. /path/mounted-tclkit/..), but this capability seems to break once a relative path is used.

    $ ./tclkit % file mtime [file join [info nameofexecutable] ..] 1528994647 % file mtime . 1528994647 % file mtime [file join [info nameofexecutable] ..] could not read "/home/andy/tclkit/..": not a directory
