Net Use and System error 53

I keep getting bit by this stupid problem, so I’ve decided to finally document the fix:

c:\> net use x: \\\share\
System error 53 has occurred.

The network path was not found.

The problem is the trailing slash at the end of the UNC path.

c:\> net use x: \\\share
The command completed successfully.
