It seems to me this can only manifest as a bug if ap_get_brigade returns too
much data, which would imply the real bug is in the filter doing that.  Hence,
no doubt, why it's been ignored for so long.

And since this is an API issue, you are always in a position to work around
that.
A trivial fix would be to insert a filter that buffers any remaining data if it
gets too much (I daresay that's pretty-much equivalent to your posted fix).

Marking WONTFIX because:
1. Hasn't been fixed, indicating lack of interest
2. Not really a bug, just a failure to compensate for bugs elsewhere
3. If it affects you, a workaround is always in your power

However, if you have real-life usage cases where this affects you, please tell
us!
It means there's a buggy input filter that needs fixing!
