Correct. But I wasn't talking about forward proxy requests here.
Forward proxy requests are IMHO done by
I don't get why you insist on talking about forward proxies when everybody else
is talking about different stuff.
OTOH if one talks about forward proxies and ask you something about that
(like about the patch above) you do not reply.

is a separate topic that is acknowledged to be broken and
is IMHO the fix.
