well, i mean that FilePath libarry should contain some sort of
normalization function that omits '\' at end of path unless it's a
":\" combination. in other words, function that you now write should
be a part of FilePath library because it's a standard functionality
although this probably will not solve your problem if you need tro be
compatible with existing FilePath version
