QGIS Doesn't send VERSION parameter on WMS getCapabilities request

Althought not mandatory in WMS specs, the VERSION parameter has become important since most WMS servers now offer WMS 1.3.0. Using Qgis against Mapnik WMS service, the getCapabilities sent back by Mapnik is 1.3.0 by default (when not requesting a specific version) and Qgis is not able to parse it properly (no WMS_Capabilities or WMT_MS_Capabilities found).

So I think Qgis should send VERSION=1.1.0 as long as it can't handle WMS 1.3.0 specs properly.

Is there a public available test server instance of mapnik running? Please provide an URL.

QGIS WMS client is supposed to work with 1.3 servers (e.g. QGIS mapserver). Probably the capabilities response from mapnik look a bit different, so it would be good to have a mapnik instance to debug and adapt the QGIS source accordingly.
