I'm glad it was a one character change.   I like the 
way those parseURL arguments for the URL sections are done.  I don't 
think I have spent much time in url.c.  It's nice that the phrasing of the 
"resolve" debugPrints nailed down where the problem was.  I thought at 
first that it might be handleable by one of those Tidy Opt settings.

Subject: [edbrowse-dev] resolveURL question

resolveURL seems like such a simple routine, but it has been a nightmare for about 15 years now.
That's why I have specific debug prints for it, at level 5, probably should be at level 4.
We need to see what it is doing and when it screwes up, like here.

The section you refer to is not relevant.
rel is the variable of the relative piece, and that code is for
rel = #foo
where I'm just changing the hash.
But here we have a new path, and the base has a hash, but the hash contains a slash, which I've never seen before.
parseURL handles it properly, so let's step through and see what goes wrong.
Line 885 is telling us where the problem is.
Fortunately the fix is literally a single character.
