At the time, I was doing some testing on Windows.  After sending this
message, I then tested this behaviour on Linux, and I discovered that it
works correctly (i.e. as one would expect) under Linux.  As a result,
I'm guessing the problem on Windows has something to do with line 30 of
WebBrowser.java and the `url.dll` call.

Take care,
