Can't request relative URLs with mechanize

Reported by gma | December 9th, 2008 @ 10:16 AM | in 0.5

I decided that the most sensible way to fix it would be to patch the MechanizeSession, on the assumption that most back ends can cope with relative URLs. If that's not the case then this implementation has probably been inserted in the wrong place.
