Description

17 years ago
Unable to access local file system by typing in c:\

Win32 2001-06-25-11-0.9.2 build.
I believe this is a fairly recent regression.  I tend to use this feature every
Monday for sending out status.

1.  Start browser
2.  In the URL field, type:  c:\  (and press enter)
3.  Nothing loads

I used to be able to browse my directory structure locally by just typing into
the URL field c:\, etc.

Notes:
a.  file:///C:/ loads fine
b.  I went to 4.x and type c:\ in and chose a directory. The URL translated to:  
file:///c%7C/WINNT/    When I type this URL into 0.9.2 build, nothing loads.  If
I change the URL manually to file:///c://WINNT, the directory loads.

Asa thinks that perhaps we're not dealing with escaped characters correctly.

I am sure that there is a dup somewhere... 

This will not make the 0.9.2 train unless someone has a tested patch which is 
reviewed by someone that I can sr.
