lynx-dev Improper ~/ expansion in file://

I have just rejoined the list after a long absence, so I am unsure whether
this issue has been addressed (a brief search on the archives yielded
nothing).  Basically, I have observed that in Lynx >2.8.1 (up to
2.8.2dev.4), file://localhost/~ gets expanded as, e.g.:
file://localhost//home/username.  This means that %p for DIRED_MENU
commands is incorrect, breaking operations like changing file permissions.
I located what seems to be the relevant section in LYGetFile.c (line 587
in 2.8.2dev.4), but don't understand it well enough to determine whether
this is buggy code.
