nginx not completly http/1.1 compliant?

Hi list,

If I request the following url

GET ?var=something HTTP/1.1

Nginx returns an error saying 400 Bad Request.

According to "Note
that the absolute path cannot be empty; if none is present in the
original URI, it MUST be given as "/" (the server root)."

I'm running 0.6.29, looked at the changelog for all stable releases but
saw no fixes for this, is this a bug? or is the above GET request
officially incorrect?
