I think, path within error messages should be in local_style

I feel even to depreciate url-to-url fix from the patch, by editing line
"if (src_is_url == dst_is_url)" ==> "if (!src_is_url && !dst_is_url)"

thus limiting only to wc-to-wc copy into itself.

url-to-url or wc-to-url or url-to-wc needs further discussion and I
better leave this here for others to comment.I personally feel to keep
this feature intact.
