Which may explain your setting, I think it's targeted to Firefox
in a strange kind of way.

Also note that the origin is an MSIE-ism.

We are getting far away from what bzr MUST handle IMHO.

I will leave my ears wide open for other such requests, but I'd
like others to speak on the subject so I put the mailing list
back in the loop.

That's a network range, i.e. the same as 127.0.0.* (which should
be handled by my last patch as well as Firefox[1]).

If someone knows how to find who set this default, I'm all ears
