Doing fossil rm foo/bar/ lists all the files contained in foo/bar as marked deleted, but fossil changes don't show any change and fossil commit don't commit anything.
fossil rm foo/bar without the trailing slash however, does work.
With the trailing slash, the output of fossil rm foo/bar/ displays the files path with two slashes after bar, which is probably the cause of the problem.
Since bash appends a trailng slah after auto-completing a directory name with tab, it is easy to stumble upon this problem which can give the impression that removing a directory is broken.

Process input path with function "file_simplify_name" for command "add" and "delete".
Have a fun!

I've verified that it has been fixed as mentioned above.
