0Icky0: That's a computer bug in the same way that walking into traffic is a walking bug.

Just don't do it:///

Yah, because file handle requests *never* originate from anything but the user and when a program crashes its never because its going to parts of memory it didn't intend and whatever made that bizzare file request is never going to be counting on that...

Linux_Yes: damn it!

doesn't work in Linux.  oh well, i guess i'll have to stick with Linux.  the stability, security, and speed is getting so boring these days.

when is Linux going to be as exciting as windows and OS X?

When it starts running a worthwhile app or two?

I've been working with computers since 1981, and testing this bug myself is the first time in my life I've ever typed anything remotely resembling "File:///"
