UrlInfo: handle filenames starting with ':'
QFile/QDir treat file paths starting with ':' as absolute paths (treated as
Qt Resource (qrc) paths), which means such a path is always absolute from
their POV. Adjust the code to be able to open files starting with ':' when
kate is used on a relative path from the CLI.
