Subject Re: large replication URL

Hi Jens,

It's an older Bluecoat SG.

Btw, I found this line on RFC 2616 re proxy and URI length support (party
like it's 1999 :p)

      Note: Servers ought to be cautious about depending on URI lengths
      above 255 bytes, because some older client or proxy
      implementations might not properly support these lengths.
