[bug-mailutils] Mailutils 0.6.1 - Problem with URL parsing?

I'm using Mailutils 0.6.1 on Debian GNU/Linux.

I think there is an issue with URL parsing, in that it seems not to handle 
usernames with "@" in them (such usernames are becoming increasingly common).

$ mailx --tls --file=imap://address@hidden@mail.messagingengine.com
Cannot open mailbox imap://address@hidden@mail.messagingengine.com: DNS name 
resolution failed

where "address@hidden" is my username, and "mail.messagingengine.com" is the 
server.  This sort of problem happens with other programs too, for example, 

Any comments or ideas?
