Description

We are using lighttpd in a surveilance camera application. Some of the systems we need to interface to send a trailing space on most lines of the http requests they make. The following code appears in a couple of places:

r = strtoll(ds->value->ptr, &err, 10);
if (*err != '\0') {

This test relies on their being no characters after the last digit before the end of the input string. The following tests for valid digits being found:

if (err != ds->value->ptr) {

May I request that the parser be tolerant to sequences of multiple spaces interspersed at any point where a space is legal and at the end of lines.

Thanks for the fix for trailing spaces in 1.4, however the system lighttpd is serving to, makes the following request which fails with error "overlong request line -> 400" due to the multiple embedded spaces. The parser needs to eat multiple spaces wherever a space is legal.

The failing request header is:
