One can not really call it a bug in URI::URL since the corresponding
specifications don't allow a syntax like file:index.html anyway, so
the behaviour is probably undefined (and a quick test of other
implementations indeed shows a wide range of behaviours).
The proper fix would probably be to use absolute file: URIs by
prepending the working directory. I will see if I can prepare a
patch for that.
