From manual page:

FILTER_VALIDATE_URL validates wrong when you set two or more urls together, for 

$url = '';

I'm using PHP version 5.3.5

Test script:
$url = '';
var_dump(filter_var($url, FILTER_VALIDATE_URL));

Expected result:

Actual result:
string(35) ""

That's a valid URL: in this case, the path component is, and 
that's explicitly allowed by RFC 3986 -- path components can include colons.

Oh. I was thinking that was <scheme>://<authority>/<scheme>://<authority> and not 
the path. Now it's clear, thank you.
