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

	http://my.secret.site/secret

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

	http://dev.w3.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/libwww/Library/src/HTAABrow.c

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*
