I noticed similar for ftp urls.

It was mentioned some time ago that unix fs ? formats allow directory 
reference with one or more / as directory separators, so in theory they 
should be OK.

I tried clicking your url. Even with the // changed to /, the link 
returns a 404. Perhaps the link is incorrect ? Did it come from a mirror 
{perhaps mirror list needs updating}. Also, I understand the mirror 
structure may have been changed.

Try going up a few directories ;)
