possible SWISH-E directory parsing bug on VMS?

try this on VMS (using the 2.1-dev-21a code on an ALPHA OpenVMS7.2 system)

$ set default disk:[SOMEDIR]
$ swish-e -i .
and it works as normal, BUT ...

$ define/trans=conceal my_root disk:[SOMEDIR.]
$ set default my_root:[000000]
$ swish-e -i .
which is functionally equivalent (same directory, just a different name), 
however the result is:
err: no valid documents have been found, check your files, directories, 
and/or urls.

clearly there seems to be a problem in how swish-e parses VMS paths .... 
however is this
known, and is there a workaround?
