Bug#413010: sftp:// more lenient in write than read

Package: vim-gtk
Version: 1:7.0-122+1
Severity: normal

gvim sftp://root@bennu://etc/bacula/bacula-dir.conf files to read the
file (but doesn't give an error, it just displays blank). This is due to
the extra : after the hostname. However, if you then do a :w, it
succeeds in writing to the file...

Which, unfortunaly for me, I just found out the hard way by losing the
contents of said file :-(
