Comment 31 for bug 1668474

Sorry but no, the situation is even now worsier than before.

For very long urls, that per se those that you can have when reverse proxying zope with VHM urls, truncating may make apache reverse proxying portions of the site that you would not want to expose in the first place.

Truncating may expose "upper" resources and is not at all a solution.

Either there is an error, if it is not technically possible,
Or the proxy proxy EXACTLY where we pointed it.

There is no reason to automatically & silently make an assumption where to proxy and even more on a different location...
