Require paths with .. in them are not normalized #575

This requires 3 files to reproduce:


require "./b"


require "#{__FILE__}/../c"


puts "ok"

In Ruby 1.9 and 2.0, running a.rb prints "ok" to the terminal:

$ ruby a.rb

In JRuby, I get a LoadError instead:

$ ruby a.rb
LoadError: no such file to load -- /Users/charlie/crap/jruby-bug/./b.rb/../c

It seems to be an issue with b.rb getting FILE as "./b.rb", which then doesn't canonicalize right with the .. in there. If you run b.rb directly or require it from a.rb without using ./, it works ok.

I'm looking into why we're presenting FILE as the relative version; it should be the canonical path, I believe.
