[WebPositive] blank page and no error when accessing non-existing file:// URL.

not really a bug -- it's just an ugly error message

if you try to load a local file that doesn't exist, you get a rather strange looking error message

"Couldn't read a file:// file"

which, I guess, is technically correct, but goofy looking
seems that something like "File not found" would be clearer and simpler

in the attached image, the error message is for a non-existent file on the desktop called "file3."
the dot at the end was there so that the file had some kind of extension, otherwise it wouldn't have generated an error message, but instead loaded up a google search URL, as reported in ticket #7596

Version: R1/alpha3R1/Development

R1 Alpha 3 has not yet been released. This was with an R1 Alpha 3 Release Candidate image.

Hi. Our WebKit port (and thus WebPositive) was updated in July. Could you retest this in a new nightly image and report back? Thanks!

Currently this will show a blank page and no error at all, which isn't much better.
