Without claiming to read Ugo's mind I think that's exactly the point. 
Too many ".."s means that there are more directories to walk up then it 
is possible. /../ is only the most simple sample. /foo/../../ is another 
one. And FilenameUtils.normalize()'s javadoc says clearly: "Returns null 
if the ..'s went past the root." And that's bizarre.
