  I built htdig with the ssl patch, and I've having some problems.

  My web server listens on:

  The port 80 HTTP server redirects to the port 443 HTTPS server. The
port 443 HTTPS server requires basic auth (which is performed against

  htdig.conf looks like this:

  start_url: https://myserver/
  authorization userid:password

  If I run htdig, I see this:

bash$ ../bin/rundig -v -v -v
URL: 1:0:
New server:, 80

  (and thing htdig sits there forever)

  So I try:

  start_url: https://myserver:443/

  Now I connect but I see eventually that htdig tries to index:

New server: myserver, 80

  So I try to exclude it with exclude_urls but no luck. I don't think
there are any references to the 'http' version of my site anywhere, and
the exclude directive should catch it. I do see /cgi-bin/ URLs excluded,
so I know that at least a part of that directive is being obeyed.

  I thought the problem might be around line 220 of htlib/, but
adding a printf statement to show the URL string value didn't help. My
content doesn't contain any references to the http:// site, and even if it
did it should be caught by the exclude.
