Duplication of host when given absolute path : "the scheme http does not accept registry part"

Hi all,

I've been using this oauth plugin (0.4.6) to handle requests to Picasa, and have just upgraded my gem sources.  However, the code broke with the following error:

URI::InvalidURIError: the scheme http does not accept registry part: picasaweb.google.com:80picasaweb.google.com (or bad hostname?)

The code seems to request e.g., "http://picasaweb.google.com:80picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/api/user/default" instead of "http://picasaweb.google.com:80/data/feed/api/user/default"

When given an absolute path, line 337 in consumer.rb reads the following and generates the url:
path = uri.path + path if uri.path
Changing it to an unless condition fixes my problem:
path = uri.path + path unless uri.path

Am I misusing the token, or should line 337 be changed to the "unless" condition?  Thanks.

For anyone else who has this problem, it is a mistake in how we're using this.  When you initialize your token, pass in the site (with the http/https at the beginning):
      consumer = OAuth::Consumer.new(app_id, app_secret,
        { :site => "https://" + Picasa.host,
          :scheme => :header
then when you make a request, use only relative urls:
    path = Picasa.path(options)
    puts "Contacting: #{path}"     # ==> Contacting: /data/feed/api/user/default?max-results=500&start-index=1&kind=photo&thumbsize
    response = token.request(:get, path)

And it should all work great.
