URI::InvalidURIError if Rails server returns status 304 (Not Modified)

Reported by Daniel Vartanov | January 31st, 2010 @ 07:06 AM

I was testing ETags functionality and found this bug.

Rails has ETags enabled by default, so you can use the following example to reproduce the bug (just replace ETag value and path with actual values)

header 'If-None-Match', '686897696a7c876b7e'
request_page path, :get, {}

(I had to use #request_page instead of #get, cause #get doesn't see custom header I set)

You will get:

bad URI(is not URI?):  (URI::InvalidURIError)
      /usr/lib64/ruby/1.8/uri/common.rb:436:in `split'
      /usr/lib64/ruby/1.8/uri/common.rb:485:in `parse'
      (eval):2:in `request_page'

Notice, that bug will NOT appear if server returns 200(OK), for instance, if ETag doesn't match
