I've created my own handler based on SoupRequest to handle my own 
"protocol". The problem is, that when I request an URL with user name, 
but without a password, like this:

webkit_webview_load_uri (webview, 

The SoupRequest receives url 
myscheme://some.domain/some/path?query=somequery, e.g. without the user 

When requesting URL with user name and password it works OK.

GDB indicates that the soup_requester_request() as called from WebKit is 
given URL without the user name, which points to fact that WebKit is not 
accepting URLs with only user name, thought such URL is completely legal 
and valid.

So the question is, is this an intended behaviour (and than how can I 
get around it) or a should I create a bug report?
