just looked this up in the specs, and POSIX seem to
require that leading slashes are preserved only if there
are exactly two of them:
A pathname that begins with two successive slashes
may be interpreted in an implementation-dependent
manner, although more than two leading slashes are
treated as a single slash.
maybe we should add a if len(slashes) > 2: slashes = "/"
test to the patch?
