It may also be worthwhile to check POSIX and see what it says mkdir should
do in this case.  I know that POSIX (or maybe it was X/Open) actually has
a lot of stuff in it about what a trailing slash on a file name means and
it's supposed to change the behavior of various commands in sometimes
interesting and unintuitive ways.
