Patch take two attached.

Related question:

file-truename appears to always return a value ending in a slash when
its argument ends in a slash, and vice versa.

The cache used in tramp-handle-file-truename, however, seems to not
distinguish between the two and so if truename for foo/ is requested
and later truename for foo, the result for the latter will end in a
slash. Did this come up before? Do you think this could be a problem
and if so, any thoughts on how to best fix it?
