           Summary: A URI with a semicolon in the path cannot be accessed
                    when using basic authentication
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs

I'm developing an application that URI that has a semicolon in the path part of
the URI (not the query string) and Webkit is not able to access it when it is
protected with Basic Authentication.

Semicolons in query strings work fine, but its when its in the paths like the
following that cause problems:


When typing in the URI, the page flickers for a second, but does nothing.  I
can see in the server logs that a request was sent to the server, and the
server responded with a 401 Unauthorized status.  The browser does not attempt
to prompt for a password.  Also in cases where the password has already been
entered for that realm, the browser does not automatically send the correct
authentication information to the server.

I have tested this with multiple different URIs, and the behaviour is
consistent.  All URIs *without* semicolons work fine however.
