I can confirm that the solution is to always have a trailing slash  
for folderish content.
That way we can :
1) keep the base tag if we want, with no harm
2) remove the base tag if we want, with no harm
3) never get anchor problems

I would vote for keeping the base tag anyway, as it would make the  
site not break if someone makes a wrong link somewhere.

Another possibility to help this would be to make all folderish  
content redirect to get the trailing slash, like Apache does.
