Terry J. Reedy added the comment:

If foo is a symbolic link,  changing A/foo/../B to A/B could change the meaning, so I am sure the rewrite is correct. I used Ezio's version with a few more changes. I particular, I changed 'This collapsing', which is slightly awkward anyway, to 'This string manipulation', which addresses Gurmeet's last comment.

resolution:  -> fixed
