[fpc-devel] ExtractFilePath and GetAppConfigDir issues

I find the following inconsistent and have to constantly check for
ending path delimiters because I am never sure which functions include
them and which doesn't.

Both the following functions returns a path, yet one includes a
trailing path delimiter and the other doesn't!  Why can't all
functions that return a path include or exclude the trailing path
delimiter.  A mix of the two is just plain annoying!

  returns:  /home/graemeg/.config

  returns:  /home/graemeg/.config/

Why does one have a trailing '/' and the other not?  They are both paths!
