           Summary: Improve APR handling of case-insensitive file systems
           Product: APR
           Version: 1.2.7
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: APR
        AssignedTo: bugs@apr.apache.org
        ReportedBy: albegley@apple.com


Apache config directives within a <Directory> container normally apply with a case-sensitive
match on 
the physical directory name, but if the directory is actually on a case-insensitive volume
such as Win32 or 
Apple's HFS+, the filesystem will match any case variant.  Hence if the browser asks for a
case variant of 
the actual name, the Require directives withn the <Directory> block will be bypassed.
This known 
exposure is typically addressed with an Apache module such as Apple's mod_hfs_apple, but it
seems that 
an appropriate abstraction with APR is the correct way to address this.
