Incorrect DNS

I just installed squid 1.1.16 on linux 2.0.30. When I retrieve a dns with "underscore", I have the following error:

The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL: <>
The following error was encountered:
Invalid URL syntax
This means that:
    Please double check it, or ask for assistance.

I checked Changelog for squid1.1.16 and I notice that it is a fixed bug (DNS with underscore are incorrect).

But, there is some "incorrect DNS" in the world and squid does not allow them. Is there any workaround?
