For any URL with pattern ' H', the nginx server sends an error response
without a header.

The following is an example:


umesh at umesh-desktop:~$ curl -vvv 'http://nginx.net/ H'
* About to connect() to nginx.net<http://nginx.net> port 80 (#0)
*   Trying connected
* Connected to nginx.net<http://nginx.net> ( port 80 (#0)
 > GET / H HTTP/1.1
 > User-Agent: curl/7.21.0 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.21.0
OpenSSL/0.9.8o zlib/ libidn/1.18
 > Host: nginx.net<http://nginx.net>
 > Accept: */*
<head><title>400 Bad Request</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<center><h1>400 Bad Request</h1></center>
