squid -- correct handling of oversized HTTP reply headers


The squid patches page notes:

This patch addresses a HTTP protocol mismatch related to oversized reply headers. In addition it enhances the cache.log reporting on reply header parsing failures to make it easier to track down which sites are malfunctioning.

It is believed that this bug may lead to cache pollution or allow access controls to be bypassed.
