Surprisingly enough, I just ran into this bug yesterday, and tried to
fix it a bit (in the redhat-outstanding-patches branch).  It seems like
the handling of text/uri-list is sort of poor.  I'd like this to be
improved at some point -- maybe I'll have time today.  If you want to
look at it, I can tell you where the code is handled.
