(sorry for the previous empty mail)

I don't think it is reliable. The manpage for dirname says (emphasis mine):

       These  functions  may  return  pointers  to statically allocated memory
       which may be overwritten by subsequent calls.  Alternatively, they  may
       return  a  pointer to some part of path, so that *the string referred to
       by path should not be modified or freed* until the pointer  returned  by
       the function is no longer required.
