It looks like TIdHTTPAppRequest.GetStringVariable no longer returns the URL from the request.

The change that broke this is:

Indy-RemyLebau
12:21:08 AM Saturday September 4, 2010
Merging tagged "Indy 10.5.7" code (RAD Studio XE public release) into trunk

The line is:

INDEX_URL            : Result := AnsiString(''); // Root - consistent with ISAPI which return path to root

I am not using ISAPI, and I expect Request.URL to hold the actual document requested.

Why was this change made to return an empty string?  Can the change be reverted?
