whenever I call, ros::this_node::getNamespace() it always returns with double slash everywhere.

I have ros::NodeHandle as a member of a class. Then I am creating object of that class inside one static function. Now main() is calling this static function. I ros::Init() inside my main. When I try to query nodehandle.getNameSpace() inside constructor of that class. it returns namespace with extra slash. If I launch node using ns="temp"it returns "//temp". If I pass nodehandle from main() to constructor of that class and use that node handle, then it returns "/temp" which is expected. This is puzzling to me. I am not using private handle here.

This question is labeled as kinetic, so my post cannot be an answer though,

the mentioned issue is reported in the development repo and fixed by ros_comm!1100. From ros_comm!1205 I assume the fix has been available in ros_comm 1.13.4 onward. For ROS Kinetic, where the last release of ros_comm seems younger than according to its changelog, the fix is unlikely available. You could try manually applying the PR ros_comm!1100.
