/ as a category base

Un Escaped solidus (/) as a Category Base

While attempting to get /categories/postname/ working on my new host (it previously worked on my old host) I entered / as the category base. Upon returning to the permalinks admin panel the category base reads instead of / or even / .

Using /Category/Postname/ URI structure

I don't know why, but the above hack (adding / as a category base) works. My website now links properly to /category/postname/, and all my trackbacks/permalinks work again. However, the Wordpress list_cats funtion in my sidebar is now spitting out href's like http://jefte.net///category/ (which looks like http://jefte.net///category/ to the browser)

This hack shouldn't work, but it does. The Mod_Rewrite rules are working, as is evidenced by my now functional permalinks.

I don't think this is really an issue that should be fixed. If a user wants to use some entity code for their permalinks, well, I guess they should be able to. All I can say to them is "..." ;)
