Description:
------------
Ok there is a problem with URL wrappers when the remote server requires authentification.

Reproduce code:
---------------
Take file_get_contents for example:

//example code
$user="user";
$pass="somepassword";
$url = "www.whatever.com/members/messages.xml"
$content = file_get_contents("http://$user:$pass@$url");
$echo "Your new message is\n";

On the packet capture the things show like this:

T 65.111.170.157:33470 -> 196.34.149.111:80 [AP]
  GET /members/messages.xml HTTP/1.0\r\n
HTTP/1.0\r\n
##
T 65.111.170.157:33470 -> 196.34.149.111:80 [AP]
  Authorization: Basic bWI1MTptYXJpbHluMw==\r\nHost: www.property24online.co.za\r\n\r\n

Of course this failes. Wouldn't it be correct to pass the auth credentials _before_ the HTTP method is specified and more assign a temporary cookie?
e.g:

GET /members/messages.xml HTTP/1.0\r\n
Authorization: Basic bWI1MTptYXJpbHluMw==\r\nHost: www.property24online.co.za\r\n
HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n
