Comment (by dd32):

 IMHO this would be a candidate for
 wp_fix_server_vars()] if a webserver configuration is incorrectly passing
 the full URI in what we expect to only contain a path.

 We'd need to document (on this ticket) the server circumstances under
 which the scenario is possible, and also the contents of the _unaltered_
 `$_SERVER` variables, and what we mangle them to.

 There have been cases in the past where we'd mangle an otherwise good
 `$_SERVER` variable to something incorrect because of something odd the
 server was passing in a variable though.
