The behaviour is consistent with filename expansion in jed:

   The `expand_filename' function expands a file to a canonical form.
   For example, under Unix, if `file' has the value `"/a/b/../c/d"', it
   returns `"/a/c/d"'.  Similarly, if `file' has the value
   `"/a/b/c//d/e"', `"/d/e"' is returned.

as such it should be considered a "feature".
