Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Four times in a row.  

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

I was initially using a valid URL of the form: 


This crashes without the error first.

Not a bug with the 0xFFFF package; closing. Please reopen against correct package if you wish this to be dealt with.
