Systems like Windows+IIS needs a script suffix in order to execute CGI scripts correctly. There is a $Foswiki::cfg{ScriptSuffix} configuration key for that cases. Foswiki::Request::url ignores this setting, leading to "The page cannot be found" errors (the browser is undeced to GET /bin/edit instead of /bin/edit.pl).

I could use Foswiki::getScriptUrl to implement part of Foswiki::Request::url, but its documentation states:

---++ ObjectMethod getScriptUrl( $absolute, $script, $web, $topic, ... ) -> $scriptURL 
(...)
If $absolute is set, generates an absolute URL. $absolute is advisory only;
Foswiki can decide to generate absolute URLs (for example when run from the
command-line) even when relative URLs have been requested.

Foswiki::Request::url() need exact results and not advisory...

This fix broke EditTablePlugin tests. So I reopened to commit the fix to the tests, that generated a URL by hand, making the same mistake Foswiki::Request::url made.
