xdg-open from xdg-utils 1.1.3-1 fails to open urls ( http/https etc ) in lxde.

The problem is located here:

938 open_lxde()
939 {
941 # pcmanfm only knows how to handle file:// urls and filepaths, it seems.
942 if pcmanfm --help >/dev/null 2>&1 -a is_file_url_or_path "$1"; then

So when I command 'xdg-open'; I get 'no such file or directory' from pcmanfm;

I made a little patch to fix that.

Steps to reproduce:
- install lxde
- run xdg-open
This task depends upon
