That is a great point. We could not find any standard as to whether or not there should be a trailing slash.
And from all the examples I could find, there seems to be a convention of omitting a trailing slash.
However, if userland provides a trailing slash, it would seem appropriate to retain it.

As a point of comparison, matching the given input is the behavior of 2.6.32-5 in Debian Squeeze.
So I think your approach is better.
