[Twisted-Python] Newbie to Twisted: Bug in http.py?

I was playing around with twisted.web today (1.0.4), and tried to make a
manual HTTP connection using telnet. Naturally I forgot to type in the
"HOST: hostname" during the request, and got a nice traceback from it.
Here are the details:
./pyblosxom.py, line 50 in render
50 serverName = string.split(request.getRequestHostname(), ':')
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/twisted/protocols/http.py, line 756 in
756 return (self.getHeader('host') or
exceptions.AttributeError: 'tuple' object has no attribute 'split'
Is this a bug or I really have to use the HOST header (HTTP/1.0 does not
have the HOST header, or is not necessary, I think). Looking at http.py,
self.getHost() is just returning self.host, and self.host can either be:
self.host = (method, host, port)
self.host = self.channel.transport.getHost()
I'm pretty much a newbie in twisted (just toyed around with it since
yesterday) and I was trying to make pyblosxom to be a twisted web server
(don't you like how that sounds). I almost got it to work the way I want
except that I cannot get the standard python cgi module to work (to get
requests like ?foo=bar).
Forgive me if this is not a bug though :)
