It's a bad feature. If the path is concatenated from two variables, you
need to take care of the end/begin of the variable. The example where I
tumble about this issue was LIB=/usr/.../jed/ and FILE=$LIB/file.

This may trigger some strange problems or you use a special function
path_concat(), as it is done. But that is not a typical doing elsewhere.
I would indicate this as a bug not a feature. But I must look into SuSv3
before I'm sure.

Bye, Jörg.
