I suspect that they only dealt with the various *security* issues and
not other, more obscure issues that are not security related.
I *also* suspect that the bug I am encountering might not in fact be
fixed in a newer release of the server, but the people on the httpd
mailing list are not being real helpful, since they are not interested
in fixing bugs in *old* versions (this is understandable).

I might try this RPM. I did get one newer SRC RPM from
http://rpmfind.net for some RedHat release, but was not able to just
build it under RH 9 -- it had a pile of build (recursive)
dependencies... I'll try this one.
