Yes. This is probably the most unsavoury part of the schema. The problem
is that a) we need to support vhosts that start with / and that don't
start with /; b) the default vhost is /


amqp://user:pass@host/   => vhost = /
amqp://user:pass@host//  => vhost = /
amqp://user:pass@host/a  => vhost = a
amqp://user:pass@host//a => vhost = /a

So basically, the first / is definitely just a separator, so if your
vhost is not / but does start with a /, then you need to add another /.
The confusion arises because the separator is / and the default vhost is
also /
