Because some scripts try to use
or otherwise insist on adding a slash somewhere in the expansion of
directory paths without checking whether they are "" or "/". While it'd
be preferable that these expansions be fixed, simply prepending a few
more slashes usually works when the system follows POSIX rules since
only "//" is special.
