 Well, that forced me to go look at the definition again,
 and from the BNF description, /// can occur
 (http://www.w3.org/Addressing/URL/5_BNF.html). Compliance
 means no bug.
 
 The apache server is relying on the underlying file system
 which may not act the same way on every system, thus possible
 inconsistencies. Other servers such as Netscape don't allow
 multiple /'s in the path (probably to remove the possible
 inconsistency.) Maybe the apache behavior (even if it's
 compliant) should be pointed out in the documents.
 
 Mike.
