Yes, http://dbltest.com?parameter and http://dbltest.com:80
are parsed wrong.
http://dbltest.com?parameter is easy to fix by treating '?' like '/'.
http://dbltest.com:80/ is a little more work to distinguish a password
such as in http://username:80@dbltest.com/

I will release a new version of DCC source with fix in a day or two.

Thank you for the bug report,

P.S. The bug happens when -Bset:URL is used with dccproc, dccm, or
  dccifd.  See one of the man pages for information about using DNS
  blacklists and whitelists with the DCC client programs, perhaps at
