How strange, it is still present even in current head.

OK updated error reporting in fetch_start yields a "bad url" error instead of "no memory" and it seems this comes from the nsurl modules handling of the file scheme.

both these fail
but these work as expected

tlsa suggests this is a regression and we need to revisit https://url.spec.whatwg.org/ So i am reassigning this to tlsa to see what he can do with it.
