With 1.3b3, a trailing "/" was normally required in
the <directory ..path..> directive, but with 1.3b6
I had to remove them to make the path valid for Apache.

I suggested requiring the trailing forward slash in
all directives for unity throughout all configurations,
when refering to either a URL or a local path.

  and/or
c:/apache/htdocs/dodah/publicdocs/

I hope I have made more sense... Sorry for any confusion.
Ive been using Apache since the 1.3b3 release and have
become fairly proficient with the config of it. Thats why
I made the PR when I found a discrepancy from one ver
to another.  I do in fact understand where and when the
trailing "/" was needed, just the rules changed on me.  :)

Thanks,
Andrew
