Subject: Bug in HTTrack %L option to include URLs from file
Author: Frank Schweickert

This bug (or my mistake?) also occurs in Version 3.15:

When including a file with a list of URLs, HTTTrack adds 
cryptic fragments of local system information to the URL!

For example, with a file "urls.txt" that contains a single 

and HTTTrack invoked by:
httrack -%L H:/_ht/urls.txt

the download fails giving the following hts-log.txt.
Look at the distorted URL after the 403 error!

Information, Warnings and Errors reported for this mirror:
note:	the hts-log.txt file, and hts-cache folder, may 
contain sensitive information,
	such as username/password authentication for 
websites mirrored in this project
	do not share these files/folders if you want these 
information to remain private

localhost/manual/index.htmlSystemDrive=D: (from 
01:39:08	Info: 	No data seems to have been 
transfered during this session! : restoring previous one!

The portion of the cryptic string varies if one inserts 
blank lines above the URL in urls.txt. So with some luck, 
if the URL eventually doesn't get distorted (let's say with 
7 empty lines above) the download works as it should!

Is it possible to fix that?
Kind regards,
