FWIW, I think the best HTTP response in this case should be 400.

404 is worse than 403 (it may be correct, but it's misleading if wrong).  414
would be another candidate, but could also lead to misleading/inconsistent
results.

Changing it to return 400 would be a trivial patch to request.c, if anyone
agrees with my suggestion.
