This is almost certainly a result of:


since I didn't believe anyone was using the regexp syntax in the base
url type. The bug I wanted to fix was where if you did:

https://.*/.* file:///some/path/

which seems reasonable enough, it would access:


which is clearly not what anyone would want.

I'm not sure what to do about fixing this...
