This throws a security exception. If you remove the first file separator, everything is groovy. I was just curious why it throws a security exception.

I might be wrong here, but wouldn't the URL that you specify have a "/" at the end of it, and supplying another "/" one make the complete URL contain "//." On windows systems, you access computers on the network that way. Maybe that's why it throws a security exception.
I could be way way off on this!
