Congratulation on the conversion to Drupal!

Looking at the HTML source, I see this:

<li><a href="barry/install.php">Install Barry from binary packages</a></li>
<li><a href="barry/cvs.php">Compile Barry from tarball, CVS, or git</a></li>

If you change that to

<li><a href="/barry/install.php">Install Barry from binary packages</a></li>
<li><a href="/barry/cvs.php">Compile Barry from tarball, CVS, or git</a></li>

Making it an absolute URL, the issue goes away.

Also, this module helps by eliminating all trailing slashes.
