You talk about multiple paths leading to the same file because of symlinks.
There are other reasons that this can happen: you can mount the same file
system multiple times (hopefully read-only). Also, much more typically,
there is the issue of paths which aren't full (i.e., do not begin with a
slash). I am assuming that the code will handle this last common case,
Speaking of the error messages I mentioned before, I still am confused why
the first message wasn't about the lexically earlier error. It certainly
would be a bit better if we could have errors reported in this way since it
is more what people expect. Also once you get past the first error, you are
in a program which is not what was read (because that isn't a program) but is
in what the error correction envisioned as being what you meant, so the
errors are going to be stranger.
