That would still be my advice.

I think this just indicates that $PGDATA was specified with a trailing
slash in the name, eg you said 
	postmaster -D /pgdata/
AFAIK the doubled slash will not matter on any Unix system.  I did
recently change the code to remove the redundant slash from the -D
argument if given --- but that was strictly to forestall future
questions like this one, not in the expectation that it would fix any
