[It seems my From: address in previous postings was omitted (my fault) 
hope it's fixed now.]

Here is a small patch, against snap-990130, to, URL.openConnection().
According to "Java in a Nutshell" an URLConnection's set methods must be
called before URLConnection.connect() is called.  If a "connected connection"
is returned from URL.openConnection(), these become unusable.  

This patch does not affect existing applications because "other methods 
that depend on being connected will call this method [connect()]."
