Host Names parsing is case sensitive

           Summary: Host Names parsing is case sensitive
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.0.18
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Critical
          Priority: Other
         Component: Unknown
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: francois.jeanmougin@123multimedia.com


Virtual Hosts is managed by the Host: header in HTTP1.x queries. Recent wap 
terminals do not lower case the host name. Host name parsed by (I assume) the 
Coyote connector is used as is (with potential upper character). RFC2616 says 
that the Host header should be treated case insensitive (see section 3.2.3).

Well, it is not really obvious because it talks about clients, I assume that a 
server should treat a Host: header case-insensitively. Because it can leads to 
broken connections, or unwanted 400 errors, I tag it as critical.

Thank you for al your work,

Fran├žois.
