The patch you yourself supplied is included in the Debian source package
as debian/patches/10-x-forwarded-for-header.dpatch (with very minor
modifications; and alas, with no description.  It should probably be
fixed to indicate the origins of the patch and a pointer to this bug).

It is unclear to me how this is supposed to fix the problem which this
bug report was originally about, though.  How does this help POST
content get through?  (Please be gentle; I might be ignorant of
something obvious.)

The Changelog says "X-Forwarded-Via" while the patch has
"X-Forwarded-For:" -- I presume the latter is correct, also as per
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Forwarded-For, and that the Changelog
should be corrected.  But again, it seems doubtful to me how this helps
solve bug #119888 which is about correctly receiving POST content.

(The comment by Nikita Borisov from 2003 alleges that this POST problem
was fixed in 2.22 although there is no explicit mention of this in the
upstream changelog, either.)

If this were a real .signature, it would suck less.  Well, maybe not.
