Test a HEAD request instead of GET, I got a 500 with
an _incorrect_ test method (my client sent two CRLF
at the the end, but no Host: header field at all)

whois -h www.functionband.info:80 HEAD / HTTP/1.0
| HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error
| Date: Thu, 20 Oct 2005 19:46:14 GMT
| Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Unix)
| Connection: close
| Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

The OPTIONS claim that HEAD should work:

| HTTP/1.1 200 OK
| Date: Thu, 20 Oct 2005 19:49:57 GMT
| Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Unix)
| Content-Length: 0
| Allow: GET, HEAD, POST, OPTIONS, TRACE
