Bug #36351 parse_url does not parse path correctly.

parse_url does not parses 'scheme:path' when path consists of numbers only. 

skype:anojszewski is parsed right.
gg:9130731 is parsed wrong (whole URL is treated as path).

Tested on versions 5.1.2 and 4.4.2.

Adam Nojszewski

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
    [scheme] => skype
    [path] => anojszewski
    [scheme] => gg
    [path] => 9130731

Actual result:
    [scheme] => skype
    [path] => anojszewski
    [path] => gg:9130731

I have found a cause of this behavior

URL like string:number are generaly treated as host:port when nuber is [0,65535]. 

When number is [65536,99999] function wraps it to values [0,34463]. 

When nuber is more than 5 digits long function treats it as part of a path.

But web browsers treat specific combinations (i.e. 'mailto:555') not as host:port, but as scheme:path.
