This is a bug report for perl from l.mai@web.de,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.26.0.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

$ perl -wE 'stat ".\0-" or die $!'
$

stat() returns success even though there is no file called ".\0-" on my system
(because \0 is not valid in a file name). I would have expected a "No such file
or directory" error (ENOENT), just like with open().

[Please do not change anything below this line]
