Hello,

Comparing File.realpath behavior with File.realdirpath behavior, they don't match:

 
 $ mkdir -p ~/foo/bar
 $ cd /home/user/foo/
 $ touch a.rb
 
 $ ruby -ve "puts File.realpath('a.rb')"
 ruby 1.9.2p136 (2010-12-25 revision 30365) [i686-linux]
 /home/user/foo/a.rb
 
 $ ruby -ve "puts File.realpath('b.rb')"
 ruby 1.9.2p136 (2010-12-25 revision 30365) [i686-linux]
 -e:1:in `realpath': No such file or directory - /home/user/foo/b.rb (Errno::ENOENT)
         from -e:1:in `'
 
 $ ruby -ve "puts File.realdirpath('bar')"
 ruby 1.9.2p136 (2010-12-25 revision 30365) [i686-linux]
 /home/user/foo/bar
 
 $ ruby -ve "puts File.realdirpath('baz')"
 ruby 1.9.2p136 (2010-12-25 revision 30365) [i686-linux]
 /home/user/foo/baz
 
 $ ls -l
 total 4
 -rw-r--r-- 1 user user    0 2011-02-01 23:00 a.rb
 drwxr-xr-x 2 user user 4096 2011-02-01 23:00 bar
 
 

If 'real' is attempting to check for real files, also realdir should be behaving similar, correct?
