Bug#450950: webkit: Requesting urls without protocol (e.g. http://) gets pages but no images

Package: webkit
Version: 0~svn26044-1
Severity: normal

Webkit internally seems to have a bug where you can quite happily
request web pages without the protocol bit at the beginning (e.g.
"google.com") but then it doesn't appear to be able to resolve images.
Adding the http:// stuff (as done in the GtkLauncher) fixes this, but
it's a nasty automagic workaround. Either URLs without protocol stuff
shouldn't work at all, or they should be able to resolve images.
