      Description

      On upgrading to 5.0.4 from a 4.x release, it was discovered that this function was no longer accepting trailing backslashes. they got this error (which was not completely helpful):

      -1: System error: -1: Scope is blank in file name 'file::10.194.72.226::data::qascrub::ccqc::testsubdirwithtrailingslash::'

      Some work has done to consistently validate filenames in 5.2 and it is possible that this problem is an unintentional side effect of these changes.

      Richard Chapman - Believes that trailing blank scopes should be allowed in the circumstances that they are being used and we should fix this issue.
