Browsing to windows network shares (on windows) is broken .
In the "Local Site" text box, one can't enter a UNC
share (something like
server\share) without it
complaining on every keypress after the third backslash
(the one after the server).
After painfully typing in the text and pressing enter,
the text entered in the "local share" box is appeneded
to all the previous text (even after deleting the text
each time), so it ends up (after a few tries)
Setting the local path to c:\ will reset the string
back to c:\, if you delete the c:\ and enter a unc
share, it changes the text to c:
again to c:
\server\share, and so on.
Same thing happens when trying to set it through the
"Default Local Path" in the "Site Manager."
playing off this bug, if you set the local path to "\"
which works (opens "My Computer" in the explorer")
then, without deleting the first backslash, enter
behind it \server\share, it works! (It works with both
the local site and explorer, and the "Site Manager")
