Set your include to:

Include whatever/*.conf

and then inside whatever create a "*.conf" directory:

mkdir \*.conf

Watch apachectl (actually httpd) barf... hard.

Reproduced with 2.x as well.

Thanks for the report. Will dig into the code.

The file name caused an infinite recursion and probably a stack overflow or the
like. It's fixed in 2.1 now and proposed for backport into the stable branches
(1.3 and 2.0).

Thanks for the report and thanks for using Apache.
