Yes, I get that with http:// as well. With https:// it endlessly cycles 
back to the "Safari can't verify the identity of the website" dialog, so 
there seem to be either multiple bugs, or the same bug affecting 
different code paths.

FWIW, I get the same with a 2607:: address, so it would seem that 
anything that isn't 2001 is triggering the bug.

Confirmed as well.

I see downthread that someone already filed a bug for this. If there is 
a URL where I can add a "me too" I'm happy to do that if it's useful.
