There were differing behaviors in the way urllib and urllib2 was handling certain kind of file:// urls which led to this error. I just made them consistent with the fix in r82780 and merged into branches.  Now, this Exception won't be thrown at the file-open state, but a addinfo url object will be returned. The opening of an Invalid path will be left to the way OS will handle it, either allow it or reject.

resolution: accepted -> fixed
stage:  -> committed/rejected
