           Summary: Safari or webkit issue - http getting chopped, when chat
                    is hostname
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Page Loading
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: andrejohn.mas at gmail.com

I have a server in my domain called 'chat' and have a Tomcat server running
there on port 8081. On that Tomcat server I have web application the provides
an RSS feed. The URL I normally use is:


This page is a form allowing me to select the feeds I want from the server.
This works correctly. Now when I tell the server that parameters for the RSS I
start getting issues. The RSS query is:


What happens is that I get told:

  The page you opened redirected you to a page that isn’t supported by Safari.
  Safari can’t open the page “chat:8081/ds/rss.do?report=visits” because it
  cannot redirect to locations starting with “chat:”.

This is strange since this page works correctly in Firefox (Mac, Linux,
Windows), IE6 and Opera. Using wget also shows no redirection happening. I am
suspecting that this is something is Safari/Webkit going funny.

A few things I have tried:

  1 - changing application/rss+xml -> application/xml  -- same behaviour

  2 - changing application/rss+xml -> text/plain -- same behaviour

  3 - changing <rss version="2.0"> to <xxx version="2.0"> -- same behaviour

  4 - doing both 3 and 4 -- URL doesn't get mangled

  5 - changing host name to or fully qualified chat.mydomain.com 
-- URL doesn't get mangled

This affects Safari 3 and the latest WebKit build (2007-07-18) on the Mac. It
also seems focused on RSS being the document type.
