The code has been cleaned up quite a bit from that original version, and
it was pretty easy to see the discrepancy between the two code paths.
However, if the code were structured like the cleanup patch below, I
think it would have been even easier.

This comes on top of my other patch. So the bug is already fixed, but I
think the end result is more readable.

When we get a list of paths from read_directory, we further
prune it to create the final list of items to remove. The
code paths for directories and non-directories repeat the
same "add to list" code.

This patch restructures the code so that we don't repeat
ourselves. Also, by following a "if (condition) continue"
pattern like the pathspec check above, it makes it more
obvious that the conditional is about excluding directories
under certain circumstances.
