Web Browser / Outlook Express - stupid url handler behavior

I doubt this warrants a fix ( nor Advisory ) , but it is realy dumb,
note the sidebar and titles in OE when testing.

  Except of course that it gives you a way to exploit that recent 
overly-long LIST response buffer overflow[*] by forcing a connection to your 
evil nntp server....  muhahaahahaaaa!


[*]  Looked it up now.  It's MS05-030.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
