Unfortunately, there are a lot of little things that don't work right
when CVSROOT has a trailing slash, so I strongly encourage you to get
used to removing it and not count on your patch to make everything work
right.  Unless, of course, you're willing to live with the fact that
things don't always work right (and it isn't always obvious that they
don't) and keep sending patches to fix them!  :-)
