Re: [O] Unable to get file link search to work

User-agent: mu4e; emacs 24.3.1


Just to say, I reproduce it, so I think it's a bug. Note, the below only
happens for me when using "file+emacs:" to force opening in emacs. The
links work with regular "file:" links, or just starting the link with
"./" Since my .org files open with emacs anyway, I normally wouldn't
add "+emacs". But the manual suggests I could.
