since .config is a file in the present case, and not a directory, it
causes different troubles as mentionned above.

I then suggest that:
 * check the type of files with a `test`-like function: regular files,
   symlinks, directory...
 * be more explicit in the second message. Example: tell the (full)
   location of the target file, which could help finding out the
   problem. And indicate the error number/description could help too
   (then no more use playing with strace ;-)).

I think that this bug should be tagged "Upstream".

Hope it helps.

Best regards,
