TChain seems to have trouble opening files with duplicate ‘/’ characters in the path. For example:
TChain* mychain = new TChain("DecayTree"); mychain->AddFile("root://eoslhcb.cern.ch//eos/lhcb/user/<letter>/<username>/test2//mytestfile.root") (int) 1 mychain->GetEntries() Error in <TNetXNGFile::Open>: [ERROR] Server responded with an error:  Unable to open file /eos/lhcb/user/<letter>/<usern>; No such file or directory
where the username is cropped after 5 characters.
This is counter-intuitive, because “//” in a path wouldn’t normally be a problem in my paths. Is this planned to cause an error? It looks like a parsing error.
