[New-bugs-announce] [issue1224] SimpleHTTPServer doesn't understand // at beginning of path anymore

New submission from philfr:

The fix to issue 1394565 introduces a nasty side-effect:
"GET http://server//file" (with two /s) does not work anymore. It
returns the directory index instead.

This is because urlparse is not applied to an URL, but to its right-hand
part starting at the path.

urlparse.urlparse("http://server//foo")[2] correctly returns //foo, but 
urlparse.urlparse("//foo")[2] (as used in this library) returns an empty
string.
