Thank you very much for examining the output so closely! Indeed we were using
default values differing in the trailing slash. This will be fixed with the next
upload. As you already have existing configs and it's just default values, you
will have to edit your config files and remove the trailing slash manually. I'd
refrain from hacking the warning away as we use upstream's clamconf to produce
the additional information, and this is what emits the warning.

Thanks again,
