When creating a new hard disk image through the API using 
IVirtualBox::createHardDisk for example, if the path component contains 
a double slash (ie //) then VB appears to truncate this path, but only 
when VB is restarted. This causes the disk image to become confusingly 
inaccessible on the next run of VB, due to an invalid location.

For example:

After VB is reloaded, becomes:

Easily worked around but /export/Machines/Guest//diskimage.vdi is a 
valid UNIX path.
