Ok, thx for the explanation. Would it be possible to wait for the release until tomorrow so I can create 
another patch for this?
Is it okay when the uri parsing gets something like this:
file:///e:/my/path/ ?

  That will be parsed as a file URI, yes. "e:/my/path/" will be parsed
as an URI with a protocol of "e",
  And no that can't wait, FC7test4 deadline is now...
