Do http headers need to fit in a single FastCGI record?

I have noticed that http requests with large headers leads to 500 errors
(more than 64k). From a previous discussion on the mailing list (2007),
Igor said that the entire FastCGI request (except body) must fit into a
single record.  Is that limitation still true today?
