Filesystem error???

Hi I am having a strange issue with my Gentoo dist. It seems that no matter how many times I cd /usr/X11R6 I get an exact duplicate of this folder now in a directory that doesn't exist
ie. cd /usr/X11R6
cd x11R6
cd X11R6
cd X11R6

results in

does anyone know why this is happening and how to correct it? X runs fine btw.
it's just odd, anyway any help would be appreciated.

I think there's a link in your /usr/X11R6 named X11R6 and linked to /usr/X11R6.
In this case, when you cd /usr/X11R6 then cd to X11R6, you're in the same directory, and so on...
Try running ls -l /usr/X11R6 to see if there's really a link pointing to this same directory.
