No, this is supposed to be like this. I agree that the comment is a bit
misleading, but http_parse_header() really builds a request from
scratch and first sets it all to zero. With "fields" I'm referring to
the struct fields in request, and this misleading comment will be fixed
in an upcoming commit.

With best regards
