Follow-up Comment #21, bug #36677 (project octave):

The handling of "file:" as a prefix should probably be limited to contexts
where that is expected.  The low-level file functions that test for absolute
file names are probably not the right place.  Those should be making tests
that correspond to the rules for file names on the OS (and filesystem).  So
it's OK to test for things like "C:" as a device name prefix, but only on
Windows systems.
