This sounds related to <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi? 
id=24159>. In any case, please file a bug via <http://bugreport.apple.com

problem. It is not part of open source WebKit, so discussing it is not  
really on topic here. You said that this used to work - it would help  
a _lot_ to know when exactly it broke.

It would be great if your bug report linked to a complete test case  
(including JavaScript code that makes the request).
