[Patch] Fixed basic auth with long credentials

Reported by Jan | April 27th, 2009 @ 07:33 PM | in 2.x

This patch fixes the http_basic_auth with long credentials.

A long username/password results in a (base64 encoded) request header string that contains newlines (\n). When decoding, Rails splitted the header with "split()" and used only the last part of the result. With the patch it splits it in max. two parts "split(' ', 2)".
