Description raboof 2011-03-26 08:19:17 UTC
open_generic in xdg-open checks whether the argument is a file (rather than a URI) with:

    if (echo "$1" | grep -q '^file://' ||
        ! echo "$1" | egrep -q '^[a-zA-Z+\.\-]+:'); then

This fails when the file is in the CWD and called something like 'foo:bar.png'. 

A more reliable check would be:

    if (echo "$1" | grep -q '^file://' ||
        test -e "$1"); then
