Some sites don't like X-Forwarded-For: unknown

I got a complaint that gave a "No Object Data"
error message. After some digging into HTTP headers I found out that this
site does not like the following header:

        X-Forwarded-For: unknown

which you get when using 'forwarded_for off'. The server immediately closes
the connection without any message.

I solved it by replacing "unknown" in http.c with "". A more
sophisticated way would be using random IP numbers :-).
