Thanks for the patch Meador, I hadn’t realized we had no tests for py_compile (it is however used in test_import and test_compileall).  I think it would be nice to commit the tests first (except for the one that’s the object of this bug report) in order to have a baseline, and then see about fixing this bug.  I’ll do that in a few days if nobody objects.

I’m not sure there would be no negative side-effects to using os.path.abspath; we don’t know what people do with symlinks and relative paths out there, so I’d prefer adding a safe special case* rather than always calling abspath.  What do you think?

* Instead of using len, something like this would be clear IMO:

      if parent:  # empty string means current directory, skip creating the dir
