Re: tramp, emacs-w3m, URL with colon

Ah, Gmane seems overloaded for delivering mails.  I forward an
article which I posted to the newsgroups.

There's no problem to send messages to gmane.emacs.w3m or
emacs-w3m@namazu.org which is a open list. :)

I could reproduce it as well, oops.  The problem arises because
the w3m-expand-url function uses file-name-directory as follows:

  w3m-create-text-page("http://www.physik.fu-berlin.de/en:w/" "text/html"...
  w3m-create-page("http://www.physik.fu-berlin.de/en:w/" "text/html"...
  w3m-goto-url("http://www.physik.fu-berlin.de/en:w/" nil nil nil nil)

I've modified w3m-expand-url so that it binds
file-name-handler-alist as nil temporarily, in the emacs-w3m CVS
repository.  Could you try it?

It is our long-standing problem to have to be solved not to use
file-name-* functions for url string. :)
