It means that from the server's point of view /index.html and
/../index.html and /../../index.html ... are all the same file, but from
the spider's point of view they are all different paths.
My guess is if you tried indexing a file at the top level:
<head><title>Go Dog, Go!</title></head>
<body><a href="../test.html">go around again!</a></body>
It would go forever. If test.html was in some subdirectory it would
return a 404. But if you move it to the top level it returns a 200.
By the way,
$URI::ABS_REMOTE_LEADING_DOTS = 1;
at the top of my spider config file does seem to fix it. I'll make a note
in spider.pl docs.
