Behaviour of logical pathnames with DIRECTORY is somewhat underspecified.


(setf (logical-pathname-translations "foo")
      `(("**;*.fasl.*" "/home/foo/faslcache/**/*.fasl")
        ("**;*.*.*" "/home/foo/**/*.*")))

and existence both



  (directory "foo:bar;x.fasl")

return both, or just the one in faslcache?

SBCL opts for both (modulo the aforementioned bug), other
implementations may do things differently.

Calling TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME first makes the answer unambiguous
-- just the faslcache one, thanks -- which is why I believe ASDF
should do that prior to calling DIRECTORY.
