It can be much worse (irix-6.5.4):

bash# mkdir x; cd x; rmdir "`pwd`"
/x: Can't remove current directory or ..

Here the error message makes sense - but is totally wron in this case :(

And here is linux-2.2.18:

cerebro:~# mkdir x; cd x;rmdir "`pwd`"
cerebro:~/x# ls -la
total 6
drwxr-x--- 0 root root 35 Jan 9 05:54 .
drwx------ 69 root root 5372 Jan 9 05:54 ..
cerebro:~/x# cd
cerebro:~# ls -la x
ls: x: No such file or directory

So, no, linux certainly does NOT remove "." ;)
