Can anyone help me figure out why the gw client is adding a "\" to the end of the UNC path specified in the restore area?

I have followed the steps on setting up and restoring the gw po. I have granted the users rights to the restore area. The user opens the gw client, selects backup and then it fails. The "select path" dialog box opens up and shows "\\tphc3-srv\DATA\restore\grpwise\P_Office\", yet when I entered the restore area management path there is NO "\" after P_Office. With the "\" at the end, the restore feature fails.

Any ideas on how to get the gw client to NOT add the "\" at the end of the UNC path??
