AFAIK, there never could be an exploit for it.  That is one of 
several hundred bits of code that makes assumptions about how
big the headers being read can be; currently, those assumptions
are valid so it is impossible to read data large enough to overflow
the buffer.  

Regardless, I fixed it in 1.2bsomething.
