@ralfw nope, is there any specific case where actor selections does not work? Im running an example and just sending a message via selections and that works

@rogeralsing @ralfw I've just tried running 1.5 and found the same thing, lookups are failing, I'm on OSX. You can fix it by prefixing the address with akka://MyActorSystem so you end up with something like akka://MyActorSystem/user/validationActor

@Aaronontheweb yeah, something like /user/actor is a valid file path and gets parsed as a file URI

ah, so it's an implementation difference in the Uri class on OS X mono perhaps
(which address and actorpath depend on)
