Subject: [PATCH] scan-tree: fix "section-from-path = -N"

Commit fb3655d (use struct strbuf instead of static buffers -
2013-04-06) introduced a regression in the "section-from-path" handling
when the configured value is negative.  By changing the "rel" variable
so that it includes a trailing slash, counting slashes from the end of
the string no longer gives the same answer as it did before.

Fix this by ensuring that "rel" does not have a trailing slash.

I was hoping you might want to re-roll your patch taking that
approach... ;-)

It would be nice to have a test covering this, but to do it well I think
we should built a bit more CGit-specific test infrastructure, which is
more work that I want to do at the moment.
