The internet keywords information page
<http://www.mozilla.org/docs/end-user/internet-keywords.html> suggests that any
string consisting of multiple whitespace separated words or any single word that
is not a valid URL will be handled by the internet keywords system.  This sounds
very useful, and is what I had enabled using the prefs UI.

If I enter a search term containing a period (.) such as "mozilla user.js" and
press enter I get an alert dialog with the following text:
"The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded"

I would really like this to cause a keyword search as the documentation leads me
to believe.  I also can't think of a situation where a valid URL could contain
literal whitespace (it would have to be % escaped), so it shouldn't be ambiguous
as far as I can see.

Currently using Mozilla Seamonkey 1.6 (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US;

Confirming, on Windows, with |keyword.enabled = true|.
