Repeating a slash (any number of times) in a Unix filename is generally
ignored (the OS itself should ignore it, though programs which parse
filenames might not be written with the possibility in mind).

A doubled slash often arises from building a path like:

   directory + '/' + relative_path

when directory already has a trailing '/'.
