Subject Re: Header with trailing space in field name passed to CGI script

A quick update:

I have made some tests with lighttpd/1.4.31 and below are the results:

1. Trailing SPACE between the field name and the colon is translated to 
the underscore in CGI environment:

so for X-MSISDN : test you get HTTP_X_MSISDN_=test in the environment.

2. Invalid HTTP Version is handled differently:

with apache 2.4.12

Host: localhost

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
