I noticed that parse_url cannot parse urls with "http://" in the query or in the path
For example :*-

Reproduce code:
$url_info = parse_url("*-");

Expected result:
$url_info['scheme'] => "http"
$url_info['host'] => ""

Actual result:
Warning: parse_url(*- Unable to parse url in /var/www/html/test/index.php on line 3

This bug still exists in 5.2.6 and it is causing Apache (2.2.8) to core dump.  Under 5.2.4 the error did not cause core-dumps; this seems a recent addition to 5.2.8.
