Yes, adding code to invalidate cache entries when Content-Length
mismatches that actual length will remove this violation and may
improve cache robustness overall. IIRC, Squid does something like
that.

A "proper" (but much more difficult) fix is to support caching of
partial responses. Very few caches are capable of that. However,
the first step would still be the detection of a partial response,
just like in the simple solution above. Thus, that code will not
be wasted.
