  Thank you, John.  Attached is a revised patch, which could be good
to get in.

  As I wrote, the logic is almost the same as the Unix version; but
there is no realpath(), and there is no strong urge to support
symlinks.  So it only tests if the remaining part contains "\.." (not
just "..", which could be a part of legitimate file name).
