[New-bugs-announce] [issue5439] string.strip behaves strangly

New submission from Dongwook Jang <jang.dongwook at gmail.com>:

Python 2.4.2 (#1, Mar  4 2008, 22:56:43)
[GCC 3.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> temp = "a/b/c"
>>> temp.strip("a")
>>> temp.strip("a/")
>>> temp.strip("a/b")
>>> temp.strip("a/b/")

So, in the second command from the last, I expected '/c' but it gives
only 'c'.
Why? Is it a bug or a feature that I don't understand?
