FWIW, I looked a little deeper and I see that
(uiop/pathname:split-unix-namestring-directory-components "."
:ensure-directory nil :dot-dot nil) returns


That means the path (directory?) is nil (and :relative), the name is
"." and file-only is T.  But "." is always a directory on unix, so
split-unix-namestring-directory-components isn't returning what I
would expect.  I would expect :relative, NIL, NIL, T.  (Or maybe
file-only = NIL?)
