I am constructing a source directory argument to rsync. It has to end with slash due to rsync behavior. I use:

os.path.join('/src/dir', os.path.sep)

And run it and realized the source directory becomes '/'. Luckily it is not the destination.

Why should join discard all previous path components if any component is an absoulute path? This is such a surprise and renders this function useless.
