      Description

      When drag and drop file from windows explorer which opened a WSL2 location to a Qt based app, urls from event->mimeData()->urls() in dropEvent(QDropEvent *event) are always missing the hostname and no way to obtian the original url.

      To reproduce:

      • Prepare a Windows system with WSL2(Windows Subsystem for Linux 2) subsystem.
      • Prepare a Qt application which accept file drop and print the URL which dropped on top of that widget/application.
      • Open any WSL2 network location, and drag the file to the Qt application. (example path: \\wsl$\Ubuntu\home\username\filename.png)
      • See the print. (for the example location, the hostname part wsl$ will be disappeared.

      Probably related to QTBUG-86277 but I'm not quite sure. Although wsl$ is not a valid hostname, but since when DnD the url are get handled by Qt internal, so seems no way to workaround. Expecting a way to obtian correct file url for DnD.

      Let me know if you need any additional info.
