OK. I just never thought file:// and ftp:// would do the same

ELinks and Links2: file:// -> pwd of the shell, but
file://home/ -> "No such file or directory".

Mozilla: file:// ->  file:/// , but file://foo -> file:///

Opera: file:// -> file:/// , and file://home -> file://home

I don't know what's the "right thing".
