 Alas not quite; for "test:test?test" and "data:test?test" it works, but for "about:blank?test" it gives pathname="blank?test" and search="". The behaviour change appears to be specific to the "about:" scheme (it happens no matter what I put after). It also doesn't split out the hash, if there is one, when the scheme is "about:".
