Apart from that, all non-graphical characters in an URL are converted to
the %xx syntax. Therefore, the URL "test # abc" is converted to
"file://[$PWD]/test%20#%20abc" *before* trying to find the file. So
lynx tries to access the file "test%20#%20abc" in the current directory,
which obviously doesn't exist.
