This has the feel of putting a bandaid on a symptom and ignoring the real
problem, but the symptom can be fixed in this case by making the function
CCL::REMOVE-UP (in "ccl:level-1;l1-files.lisp") remove any (redundant)
"." components from its argument:

(defun remove-up (dir)
   (SETQ DIR (DELETE "." DIR  :TEST #'STRING=))
   (LET ((n 0)
         (last nil)
         [...])))
