Dear Heiko,

(please keep the other from Cc on Cc)

the Debian build process exhibited a problem with upgrade to TL2009, namely
that a literal
is not accepted anymore in \nolinkurl{...}

Minimal example:
	Test \nolinkurl{c:\fooooooo\barrrr}
The problem is that docbook -> latex translation uses \nolinkurl for
local paths, too, as above, and there are Windows paths.

I confirmed that using the hypertex files from TL2007 the same 
document works without any problem.

I wanted to ask you if that is a changed that is intended, or a regression.
And if it is intended what you suggest as a replacement.

Thanks a lot and all the best
