Description Jesse Glick 2012-05-24 11:31:38 UTC
Unapplied portion of patch in bug #207060 comment #24 appears to correct first problem listed in bug #207060 comment #16: ""URI has an authority component" from<init> in

There are probably numerous other problems which we will not find unless and until we replace all calls to File.<init>(URI) and File.toURI with functioning variants, but this is a start.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201205290002* on (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #212947: Using special URI to File conversion when getHost() is specified - helps the UNC case
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2012-05-29 15:57:42 UTC
Integrated into 7.2, not 7.1 I guess.
