I don't know if this has anything to do with the problems that you are
seeing but there is a while loop in is_only_below that is running off
the end of the string.  

        while (*path && *(path++) != '/')
            ++path;

The while loop increments "path" twice in one iteration which means
that any string with an odd number of characters will skip past the
check for NULL and start walking through whatever memory exists at that
point.  This is causing NetWare to fault.  I'm sure it is causing other
platforms problems also.
