URI string format inconsistency #779

Tested in CodeIgniter 2.1.0.

According to the issue #9 the $uri_string property of the URI class should never contain a leading forward slash:
EllisLab#9 (comment)

However this does depend on the detection method used by $this->uri->_fetch_uri_string()

For example: _detect_uri() trims the leading slash, while the $_SERVER['PATH_INFO'] based method preserves it.

The temporary fix I made removes always any leading or trailing forward slash from $this->uri->uri_string, as that is the intended behavior since the CodeIgniter Reactor era.

$path should be always trimmed trim($path, '/') before calling $this->_set_uri_string($path), as $this->_detect_uri() does.
