Hmm. I'm not sure why that reset would be needed. I just ran a series of
tests with detailed debugging of the vary details being loaded from disk
and it seems the last patch was correctly erasing the \0 terminators
(and they were wrongly being stored).

So at least this new regression is fixed. Anything else seen in Vary is
a separate bug.

FYI Ralf reported bug 4481 to track it. I have updated the bug with an
explanation of the issue and applied that last patch to Squid-4 now. It
should be in 3.5 in a day or two.
