If you run this simple server example :

import asyncio
from aiohttp import web

def handle(request):
    return webResponse(body=request.path.encode('utf8'))

def init(loop):
    app = web.Application(loop=loop)
    app.router.add_route('GET', '/', handle)
    srv = yield from loop.create_server(app.make_handler(), '', 5555)
    return srv

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

except KeyboardInterrupt:

The following requests will get a 200 OK with the considered path as content :

$ curl -X GET
$ curl -X GET

As you can see, the path of the URL is not well parsed.

This bug resides in the _splitted_path non-data descriptor which uses urlsplit on a path rather than a full URL. The consequence is a second segment interpreted as a network location if the first one is empty.

I've not quite investigated a fix at the moment, but _splitted_path only being used by raw_path and query_string seems to be a plea to use a fake scheme and netloc for urlsplit to behave the expected way.
