Hi again.
I've checked the code and problem is with wget which sends HTTP/1.1 without 
Host header which is required by apache. Comment from server/protocol.c:
 * Client sent us an HTTP/1.1 or later request without telling us the
 * hostname, either with a full URL or a Host: header. We therefore
 * need to (as per the 1.1 spec) send an error.  As a special case,
 * HTTP/1.1 mentions twice (S9, S14.23) that a request MUST contain
 * a Host: header, and the server MUST respond with 400 if it doesn't.

The wget package will be in next stable debian which sux because all CONNECT 
requests thru apache will fail.

I just compiled wget from git (1.14.31-3be7) and the bug is still there.

Any idea what to do?
Should somebody fill bug for debian and wget or should we ignore that RFC
