surprising element segmentation

Description

I was shocked today to find that this fails:

assert(
    boost::starts_with(
        boost::filesystem::path("/website/public_html/"),
        boost::filesystem::path("/website/")));

The reason is that the 2nd path has 3 elements, "/", "website", and ".". I found that last one especially surprising.
