My apologies! Patch attached.

The original code always assumed a '/' would be appended, so it set
the length of the resulting SV to be +1.

With my earlier patch, this wasn't the case if the SV already ended in
a '/', so later checks on the SV that were based off the length of the
SV would be wrong.

New tests included.
