Description Mark Drayton 2010-05-04 09:19:57 UTC
When configured with a virtual host, caching and a non-empty CacheIgnoreURLSessionIdentifiers parameter httpd segfaults on requests with no path. Configuration:

NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName www.example.com
  CacheEnable disk /
  CacheRoot /tmp/cache-root
  CacheDefaultExpire 86400
  CacheIgnoreURLSessionIdentifiers cachebuster


host:~ tail -0f logs/error_log &
[1] 7637
host:~ (echo "GET http://www.example.com HTTP/1.0"; echo) | nc localhost 80
