There is no standard that specifies how URLs should be respresented in
user interfaces, and as this is not a valid URL, except as a relative
one *within* a site, the browser is free to take the most sensible 
action.  Interpreting things starting with ftp. as ftp://ftp. and things
that start news. as nntp URLs seems a perfectly sensible approach and
not a bug.
