CoG's gsiftp handling has an unconventional (as in different to the Globus
Toolkit) understanding of gsiftp URLs; you need to use two slashes after
the hostname in gsiftp URLs that are given to CoG.
Globus Toolkit gsiftp URLs implicitly start at /
CoG URLs start in pwd, and need an extra / to get to root.
Both interpretations violate my understand of the ftp:// URI scheme on
which I understand the gsiftp:// scheme to be modelled.
(to be even more picky, its a violation to use gsiftp:// as a URI scheme
as it neither begins with x- nor is registered with IANA... ho ho ho)
