In the function make_template in HTAABrow.c, there was a problem generating
the template (part of the address and a terminating '*') which can cause
the library to keep asking for credentials if the address looked like this


This is now fixed - it is commit'ed and the fix is in


The rule is now that the template are generated as follows

	http://my.secret.site	 	-> http://my.secret.site/*
	http://my.secret.site/secret 	-> http://my.secret.site/*
	http://my.secret.site/very/secret	-> http://my.secret.site/very*
