Trailing slashes should be stripped before checking the database to see if the
page exists. It's a fairly common screwup to put a trailing slash on the end of
a URL, and it's all Apache's fault for being so anal about them!
At the moment we have the following
- one trailing slash : generates another page
- - see examples from bug 2343: navigation to parent pages of a subpage
- two trailing slashes and more trailing slashes : probably depending on the server
- - see bug 2088: Consecutive /s merged in PATH_INFO URLs on Apache 2

Not sure if bug 12703 is a dupe, if so, this bug should probably be duped to it (as that one has much more activity).
