On systems which use Unix paths (including Cygwin), the output shown
above is correct.

On systems which use Windows paths, e.g. the Mingw port of Mercury,
you are right that the output should be "bar".  The "dir" module has
just not yet been ported to give the correct answers on such systems.
Patches welcome...
