I noticed that.  However, this does not to seem to bother MacOSX
too much (R internals on MacOSX may not like it):

madeleine:~> pwd
madeleine:~> ls Library/R//maps//mapdata
county.G  nz.G  state.G  usa.G  world.G  world2.G  world2.N
county.L  nz.L  state.L  usa.L  world.L  world2.L
madeleine:~> cd Library///////R/maps//mapdata
madeleine:~/Library/R/maps/mapdata> pwd
