New submission from Sridhar Ratnakumar <sridharr at activestate.com>:

This error happens on Windows. The culprit seems to be the
`constructLocalFileUrl` method that is constructing invalid URLs.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python26\lib\test\test_urllib.py", line 241, in test_copy
    test_support.TESTFN), second_temp)
