I would completely agree if this would be the case, but it isn't. The error messages tells you that the worker name was truncated. This is unrelated to the request URL that is forwarded. The truncated worker name only means that if you have multiple ProxyPass directives and if the truncation of the worker name leads to the same worker name they use the same connection pool for the backend connections. This is no issue at all, contrawise: It saves resources on the backend.
