It's bash 2.0.5 from pkgsrs. csh does the same thingh.
Well, with or without the trailing slash, it behaves like this.
$ cd work.i386/fetchmail-5.9.0
$ head ../../patches -> tabbing here gives me "patches "
$ head ../../patches/patch-a -> tabbing here gives me "patches/patch-aa"
$ head ../../patches/patch-aa
head: ../../patches/patch-aa: No such file or directory
bash bug ? Oh, btw, I do _not_ traverse filesystems, if it matters

Weird. Seems to be in libc...
Well in fact I greatly exaggered the impact of this supposed missing
slash. All it does is to affect graphical FTP client on my development
platform (Mac OS X) -> show a file icon and don't want to CWD in it.
Not that serious :-)
