BUG in decompose-file-name

Dear all,

I have found a bug in the decompose-file-name function.

Typing the following command I obtain:

STk> (decompose-file-name "/a/b/c.stk")
("/" "a" "b" "c.stk")

while the documentation says

(decompose-file-name "/a/b/c.stk")
        ==> ("a" "b" "c.stk")

Other problems raises when I do not use an absolute path name. I obtain an

(decompose-file-name "any_file_name")
[... I am still waiting for an answer]

Note: I think it is useful to know if a filename is a full-path-name or not
      (the "/" item should be documented), but a fix is needed for relative
