Do not worry. I did not change that at all because coolo provided a convincing 
argument why it should not change when I posted the original patch so it  
still works just like it did before.

Not directly. It was related to the issue of typing "smb:" producing some 
error message that coolo mentioned to me. Regarding BR#76372, we did not at 
anytime offer to replace a "keyword:" with a whole URL. At least not 
intentionally. This was never supported and if for some reason it worked that 
way during a prior release, then that was the bug. But I do not remember that 
ever being the case. In fact, I remember a wishlist item or two requesting 
support for such behavior. Whatever documentation states otherwise is IMHO 
wrong and needs to be fixed. Was this the quick help ?

What fun would it be otherwise ? ;)
