[Ecls-list] truename bug?

The truename function doesn't resolve some of the "." and ".." directories
along the path, so it doesn't provide a canonical path.

ecl -norc
ECL (Embeddable Common-Lisp) 11.1.1

(truename "..") ; => #P"/home/bege/../"            ; not
ok<ecls-list at lists.sourceforge.net>
 <ecls-list at lists.sourceforge.net>(truename "../bege/") ; =>
#P"/home/bege/../bege/" ; not ok

(truename ".") ; => #P"/home/bege/"                 ; ok
(truename "/./home/") ; => #P"/home/"               ; ok
(truename "/./home/./bege/") ; => #P"/home/./bege/" ; not ok

I would prefer not to have any "." and ".." along a canonical path, just as
many other lisp work (sbcl, ccl, clisp, abcl).
Is there a way to get that?
