Yes, it does, when given proper requests.

This is NOT a legal HTTP/1.1 request. The request URI and the Host:
header mismatches. Proxies (like Squid) make use of the absolute request
URI present in proxy request, while servers rely on the Host: header
since they only get a abs_path URI from most client/proxies.
