I think you understood me correctly. Let me try again:

code for vcs url:

			# fall-through

code for std url:

		# if it is just an URL, we only keep the last component

If proto is hg*|svn*|bzr*, then the code for vcs url runs, but so does 
code for std url.

Hence the fragment is striped in the code for vcs url, but the code for 
std url overwrites the value filename value, and the end result is the 
fragment is left on.

My experience was different. To double check myself, I have since 
created a minimal test case to check this. This is my test case and 
results: http://dpaste.com/hold/785819/
