I don't think this warrents a new directive: the current behavior is just
bad.  But I also don't think it is correct to just give up in this case. 
A very quick look at mod_speling leads me to believe that the problem is
the stuff inside the #ifdef WANT_BASENAME_MATCH.  I would guess that
making that conditional on dotloc!=0 would solve the problem.  But I'm
not in a position to test my theory right now.
