I think the trick is that the file:// is the protocol, and the next / is
saying “absolute local path”.
If you had no third slash… file://myserver/share/dir will look for a
“myserver”. I guess if there wasn’t a / before the c: then
file://c:/dirwould be looking for a host named “c:”.
Of course there are more relaxed implementations than the RFC provides…

The leading slash seems wrong to me, but then I’m not familiar with the
RFC’s that cover such things.
Any insight appreciated.
