Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnucash

1. Put a GnuCash file in another machine
2. Share that folder using Samba or SFTP (just having openssh-server will do)
3. Connect to that network share (Samba/SFTP)
4. Launch GnuCash
5. Open that GnuCash file in the network share

GnuCash failed to open the file and says something like:

Can't parse the URL /home/ceefour/.gnucash/data/sftp:,,blabla,blabla.gnucash

It seems to be an escaping problem, where GnuCash fails to replace ":" with a proper replacement character (I guess ",")

See also attached screenshot.

Work-around: I use Dropbox with Gnucash files and it works great.
