Description Andrew Finnell 2011-09-15 09:54:50 UTC
When Directory.GetCurrentDirectory() == '/' on a Unix system, Path.GetFullPath("test.txt") return "//test.txt". Simple check needs to be added to see if the current directory ends in a DirectorySeparatorStr.

This appears to have been open for a while. Is this fix being merged or rejected?

I'm looking into it. So far I've reproduced the issue with a test case and confirmed your suggested fix fixes the original issue.

Reading the Github thread, it seems there were also some issues on Windows? I wanted to check that first before getting this in.

Thanks for the bug report and sorry for the long wait on getting this processed.
