This is enough to remove the weird url.
What kind of clients are you using to still see the garbage on the
URL? I don't see it anymore with safari, firefox, ie, konqueror and some

To enter the path with the garbage you would need to use an hand crafted
sessionized url with a not existing session. Otherwise it won't be touched.
Sincerely I don't think anybody will see this behaviour in action.

If you have some usecases we can change it though.
