Bug #5046: Bug with xmlrpc::client, basic auth and long authentication strings
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5046

Author: Herwin Weststrate
Status: Closed
Priority: Low
Assignee: Hiroshi Nakamura
Category: lib
Target version: 1.9.3
ruby -v: 1.9.2-p290 (and earlier releases)


XMLRPC::Client has support for basic auth. This tries to encode the
combination of the username and password with the base64 algorithm using
Array.pack. If however your username and password exceed a certain
length the truncate algorithm of Array.pack kicks in and adds a newline
character in the result, which creates HTTP headers that are invalid.
