Routing: URLs with/without trailing slash change meaning of relative links
Both the URLs e.g. /typo3cr/setup and /typo3cr/setup/ call the same controller code.
If a relative link to e.g. "install" is created in that code it will point to either
"/typo3cr/install" or "/typo3cr/setup/install" depending on the URL used.
Add the trailing slash before calling the controller code so both versions
give the same result.

The problem is not the routing mechanism, but the way browsers resolve relative links.
So there won't be away around a base-tag like it's needed in current "realurl"-websites (well, apart from using absolute urls).
I'll leave the ticket open as a reminder, that we need to allow leading slashes in routes. Right now they're ignored, but it probably should be possible to create "mycompany/about-us.html" as well as "mycompany/about-us/".
By the way: We're currently working on a link-helper which generates correct links based on configured routes, so you won't have to deal with slashes anyways.
