Comment (by nominolo):

 The "." -> "" problem is a problem in filepath, not necessarily Cabal.
 The problem is that it calls {{{normalize}}} which does this (IMO) illegal
 transformation.  A normalized path should always work.  I think Neil fixed
 this in the latest (unreleased) filepath, I haven't tested though.  The
 problem described in the original report should be fixed, though it's sad
 we do not seem to have regression tests for this one.
