 One of my more popular installs is getting its `debug.log` blasted with

 PHP Notice:  Undefined index: HTTP_HOST in /wp-includes/canonical.php on
 line 63

 Which is in this conditional block of `redirect_canonical`

 if ( !$requested_url ) {
         // build the URL in the address bar
         $requested_url  = is_ssl() ? 'https://' : 'http://';
         $requested_url .= $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'];
         $requested_url .= $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];

 This is more than likely being generated by bots hitting pages that no
 longer exist or have never existed. I created a
 nav-menu-template support topic] on the issue which then was told to
 create a ticket. I believe my 2nd notice ( in the support question ) is
 also related.
