Summary: ic module "path too long" error

Initial Comment:
The IC module returns a path too long error for file:/localhost type URLs. Here is an example:

# this works:
>>> webbrowser.open("file:///Users/rowen/PythonRO/TUI/TUIHelp/Telescope.html#CoordSys")

# this fails, though URLs of this form are accepted on unix:
>>> webbrowser.open("file:/Users/rowen/PythonRO/TUI/TUIHelp/Telescope.html#CoordSys")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?

    get().open(url, new, autoraise)
