A terminology issue, I expect.

That is the session-*name*.

The session is in an opaque bundle, the name of the bundle is the
session-name. On some systems that support it, this bundle-folder is
represented as file (think like a zip archive, the content is not
directly exposed)

That's just a snapshot (not the session-name). You can have multiple
.ardour session-file snapshots.

and I expect the session-dir in the bundle

   interchange/`basename $(pwd)`

does not exist.
