Someone edited the title, and there's a little casual overlap.

Thahks. I did edit the title. I guess the user who pointed out the double URL had the previous URL still. –  John Saunders Jul 14 '09 at 0:46

The last part of the URL is just for SEO (and human readability too, I guess). This is normal for SO-family sites.

Did the user change the url? Also, I think the last / represents a variable value that doesn't really determine the ultimate destination. Perhaps Jeff could tell us what exactly that segment is used for beyond Google-ranking.
