Error description

  • When a client sends a http 0.9 request the port forwarding code
    in the proxy blows up:
    
    java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: empty text
         at
    org.jboss.netty.handler.codec.http.HttpVersion.<init>(HttpVersio
    n.java:97)
         at
    org.jboss.netty.handler.codec.http.HttpVersion.valueOf(HttpVersi
    on.java:62)
    
    Need to update/patch the netty class so that if the string is
    empty it treats this as version 0.9
