Re: \w, $PWD and pwd builtin return "//" instead of '/'

Ah, something was telling me that this could not have been missed, but
after checking behavior on couple of different shells (csh, ksh, tcsh) I
was convinced that it's not a proper behavior. Though now I see that, e.g.,
dash does the same thing. Note to myself: always check what POSIX has to
say. Or at least remember to run through the FAQ. :)

Anyways, thanks for your feedback!
