bug#5134: $PATH with double slashes parsing bug

Hi,

I discovered this strange behavior of eshell in emacs 23.1.1 (on MacOSX and Debian Lenny, both built from source, launched with '-q').

It seems that the presence of two slashes ("//") in a path breaks the search:

Example:

~ $ export PATH=/usr//bin
~ $ which m4
which: no m4 in (/usr//bin)
~ $ export PATH=/usr/bin
~ $ which m4
/usr/bin/m4
~ $


I mailed this to address@hidden (maintainer of eshell) who told me that it seems to be an Emacs issue.

Cheers,
