Description Dmitry Marakasov 2009-08-14 18:55:40 UTC
xdg-utils 1.0.2, FreeBSD 8.0-BETA i386.

# xdg-open "http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/applications.html#PORTS-MAJOR-UPGRADE"
sed: 1: "s#%s#http://www.freebsd ...": bad flag in substitute command: 'P'

browser_with_arg=`echo "$browser" | sed s#%s#"$1"#`

obviously, $1 should be escaped, or (likely better) printf should be used instead of echo.
