Bug Description

There is a small issue with the sx backend which fails when the sx path doesn't contain a trailing slash.

For example this works:
duplicity remove-all-but-n-full 2 --force sx://@cluster/backup/pc1/

But this doesn't:
duplicity remove-all-but-n-full 2 --force sx://@cluster/backup/pc1
and results in:
Reading results of 'sxls sx://@cluster/backup/pc1'
Backtrace of previous error: Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 365, in inner_retry
    return fn(self, *args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/", line 564, in list
    return [tobytes(x) for x in self.backend._list()]
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/duplicity/backends/", line 46, in _list
    return [x[x.rindex('/') + 1:].split()[-1] for x in l.split('\n') if x and not x.startswith("total ")]
 IndexError: list index out of range

The stupid patch attached makes sure the trailing slash is always present.

On a side note all the calls to self.subprocess_popen appear to feed unescaped arguments to the shell. This is however not specific to the sx backend.
