In normal Unix file systems, there cannot be a "filename with double
slashes".  Emacs is already careful to preserve double slashes in the
few known cases where they can appear (mostly in
"//<share>/<filename>"), so if you find more such cases, please report
them here so we can try and teach Emacs about them.
