Yeah, that's to be expected. I can imagine a number of situations
where it might be a problem (e.g. if you're using port-specific
aliases), so it'd be a good thing to fix. We don't really track what
socket a connection was made on, nor do we currently parse the Host

Ideally,we'd parse (and trust) the Host header, and if absent, we'd
fall back to whatever the connection was made on (I don't know what
the existing clients are like with using Host correctly - many of them
have generally terrible http support, so I'd expect some to get this

Patches appreciated! :-)
