I use Quicksilver on OS X, but have not gotten used to it very much. One thing that really irks me is that sometimes when I type something in my file system, which could be either a folder or a filename, QS insists that it wants to look for a URL.

It finds the full path, but the icon is the "world" and the action on the right is "open URL". Of course this does not work and nothing happens.

What controls this bizarre behavior and how do I correct it?
