Yes, it is reproducible. Go to places- connect to server, and when its box comes up, select Custom Location for Service type. Add whatever URI in location, and click on Connect. I get the same error i told you about every time.

could you describe what you type exactly as an URI? the format needs to be valid

depends of where you try to connect but just typing the dns name or the ip should work

I also get the exact same error when trying to connect to a custom webdav url eg https://servername/webdav/username/userfolder on ubuntu(and mint as well) 10.10 and 11.04.

I thought the custom location is there for custom url's so there is no valid format as such?

The bug is old and Ubuntu changed quite a lot since, there has also been no activity here nor similar reports. Closing since we believe the issue as described is deprecated but feel free to file a new report if you still have problems in recent Ubuntu versions.
