I suspect the problem of a clash with a directory named file:// minimal
though, in POSIX at least.  Not sure about the network file server issue,
but with the double (treble) slash it also seems unlikely to be a problem.

Thanks for the info, I hadn't noticed the Paste Filenames context menu
item, but since I always paste with "Ctrl+Shift+V" ... I'll see what the
gnome types think about providing a short cut customization, seems an
oversight not to provide one.
