There is one change with comments about this in kpathsea/readable.c:
+  Support very long input path name, longer than _MAX_PATH for
+  Windows, if it really exists and input name is given in
+  full-absolute path in a command line.
+  /../, /./, \..\, \.\ should be excluded (2020/06/06)
+  More than one adjacent directory separators should be
+  excluded. (2020/10/24)

That is the only relevant change in kpathsea besides knj.c updates that
probably (?) don't apply here.

Akira, any idea?
