You are right, when I ran against MRI I got the "". In my case I always use _why's web page to test the results and unfortunatly the result was ".bashrc", you see I trust _why :) 
So if this has to match MRI, yes, then I need to change the code. Let me know.

Quick question:  are the specs supposed to ensure that IronRuby matches 
MRI's behaviour, or just that it's internally consistent?  I get this in 

irb(main):001:0> File.extname(".bashrc")
=> ""

Also in YARV:

irb(main):002:0> File.extname(".bashrc")
=> ""
