New submission from Senthil Kumaran <orsenthil at gmail.com>:
file:// scheme should not be allowed to access a file on remote machines. RFC 1738, says that host, if present should be the FQDN of the machine, but relaxing on that I thinking that localhost and its variants should okay as long as it is the local machine.
What is going to break in 3.2 is file:// trying to access resources on remote machine via FTP, which it is currently trying to do.
Attached is patch to accomplish this.(NEWS and Docs will be added).
This would introduce a regression, so this may not be backported.
