I don't think this is an Emacs bug, precisely, since Emacs shouldn't be
uncompressing that file.  But is it a bug that

(browse-url-file-url "/foo.bar")

gives "file:/foo.bar" and not "file:///foo.bar"?

It seems to me that the last element of `browse-url-filename-alist' should
just be

("^/+" . "file:///")

If I'm not mistaken and this is wrong, perhaps it's confusing the browser?
