[patch] remove vestiges of normalizing rails urls before action

Reported by Adam greene | January 16th, 2009 @ 03:16 PM | in 0.4.1

hey guys,

Here is my use case. with my previous patch on internal_redirect? ignoring subdomains, the fact that #do_request strips out host information becomes an issue. My app, as well as many others I imagine, will redirect users to their appropriate subdomain if they aren't in it, but if the host information is stripped then my app keeps seeing the old host and it goes into an infinite redirecting loop.

I imagine this logic was there to try and work around the redirecting issue, but now that I think Josh came up with a nice solution for that, I suggest that this logic is removed.

If our belief is that testing frameworks should emulate the 'real world' as much as possible, then normalizing url's does not do us any favors.

Please let me know if you have questions. Thanks, Adam
