1.7 checkout dialog open to clipboard injection

When opening the checkout dialog on a non-empty folder (to check out into a new subfolder), I was surprised to see gibberish entered into the url and directory fields. After some experiments, I think that if your clipboard contains text starting with a word of at least two letters directly followed by a colon, e.g. "am:pm" (without quotes), the complete clipboard is pasted as value of both the url and directory fields. Maybe this is intended to make it easier to check out a URL in your clipboard, but then I don't understand why the complete URL is proposed as directory - the dialog itself says that colon is not a valid part of a filename (on Windows). If it is intended, it should be a little more strict on what it considers to be a URL. I don't know where the border is, but if the clipboard happens to contain megabytes of lines of text that start with "Error: ", it's not meant as a URL...
