Details

URI parsing broken when username is specified for a news server.

(you'll see this when you use alecf's work around for bug #12397)

I'm working on the fix now.  I should be able to check it in shortly.

fixed.  now if you specify a userName, news will work.

almost all the news related features were busted.

this fix will make implementing authenticated news much easier.

now, I need to go make it work when there isn't an userName specified.
