If it's not the trailing slash which is causing the leading slash in the 
proxied requests, I need to look elsewhere. If I don't get anywhere, 
I'll try to produce something a little more informative.

I take your point about upgrading. The problem is that 0.7.65 is 
absolutely rock solid, and is in use in an extremely busy system, so 
there has been little incentive to upgrade! I do think we should do so,
