Here's the upstream reference/changelog:

"* limit parsed URIs with new config parameter MAX_URI_SIZE, default
8192 (RedHat #605286, forwarded by Vincent Danen). For arbitrarily long
URIs, alloca() could run out of stack space -TD"

So it got fixed in the 4th dev version of 2.8.8. Everyone who's using
2.8.8 (release version) or above is not affected.
