In fact, what happens is that a regular expression is removing the
initial file:// from a file: URI, and not taking into account that it
could start with a triple-slash. Or it *is* taking it into account and
doing it on purpose to get a /path on Unix.

If removing three slashes is OK, the patch is as easy as changing
"file://\\(.+\\)" to "file:///?\\(.+\\)". If not, a check for windows
(or for a Windows-style path) will have to be done.

Dan, comments?
