[Ecls-list] POSSIBLE BUG: filenames with two periods

I don't know if this is deliberately left open by the standards or a
bug, but I'm getting a behavior that differs from clisp and sbcl
using the 'make pathname function' regarding filenames with more
than one period sign.

--- Reproduction --
Execute these commands in a terminal:

touch /tmp/foo.txt
touch /tmp/foo.bar.txt

Now start up ecl and enter the following:

    :name :wild
    :type "txt"
    :version :wild
    :directory "tmp"))

ECL returns


SBCL and CLISP return:
(#P"/tmp/foo.bar.txt" #P"/tmp/foo.txt")

--- Desired behavior ---
ECL, SBCL and CLISP all return:
(#P"/tmp/foo.bar.txt" #P"/tmp/foo.txt")

--- Workaround ---
Not known at this time
