Bug#4509: mkdirhier is buggy

Package: xbase
Version: 3.1.2-9

mkdirhier claims that it cannot create an already existent dir when two / are

bash# /bin/sh mkdirhier /tmp/toto//titi
mkdir: cannot make directory `//tmp/toto/': File exists

On other Unixes that provide a real "sh" Bourne shell, there is no trouble.
It seems that bash isn't 100% compatible with sh :-(

Does mkdirhier be patched to accept this syntax ?
Thanks in advance.
