BUG in URL.java line 115

The test against host being NULL is mistaken.  In the case where a
"file:" URL is being constructed, a good deal of existing code passes
'null' as the host.  This test should be ommitted if the protocol is "file".

I found this because it broke Jim Clark's xt package.

I'ld say high priority.
