Well, depends what you mean normally. Typically in BSD saying "foo/" means
the same as "foo/.". cp behaved inconsistently before. FreeBSD for example
copies the contents of a directory when the directory has a trailing slash
(and documents this in the manual page). Linux does not. I don't see the
missing last character you mention.
