I did look into the source code and it looks like that this was a
regression in 4.3.x. So only jessie is affected. squeeze, wheezy (and
likely sid) seem to be fine.

Coming back to commons-httpclient:

RedHat produced a patch here:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=1072467&action=diff
Part of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1259892

BTW, would it not be possible to get rid of commons-httpclient
if it has been obsoleted by httpcomponents-client ?
