Issue #15244 has been updated by jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans).

File multiple-leading-dot-basename-extname-15244.patch added

I agree that this is a bug.  The comparison that nobu made with `basename(1)` is relevant, but unlike `File.basename`, `basename(1)` does not handle `.*` specially.  You can see that `basename(1)` does actually strip the extension even for multiple leading periods:

```
basename '..*' '.*'
..
```

Attached is a patch that fixes the issue, both for `File.basename` and `File.extname`.  With the patch:

```ruby
File.basename('..jpg', '.*')
# => "."
File.extname('..jpg')
# => ".jpg"
```
