Subject: Getting "Error reading header" messages in error_log


We are getting either of the following error messages in error_log:

[error] [client ::1] client sent HTTP/1.1 request without hostname
(see RFC2616 section 14.23): /proxy/ssllogin, referer: <URL>


[error] [client] request failed: error reading the headers,
referer: <URL>

& ultimately gets "Http 400 Page Cannot be Displayed" error page.

Further digging into the problem shows that even ap_rgetline_core()
[protocols.c] reads the HTTP header data wrongly. Some of the header
fields are either missing or overrun to other fields. Do anybody have
any idea on this ?

FYI, we are using Apache 2.2.6, PHP 5.2.9 & Openssl 0.9.8k for
building web-server.
