Going the initial comment and postfix of comment #12 above, please don't worry 
about totally functional code, as right now we have to pound out some 
theoreticals.  In fact I *had* prompted the dev@apr list (who's readers include 
subversion, log4cxx and other apr applications beyond httpd) for any insight 
if the proposed 'fix' in APR 1.2.11 would break things.  This application case 
was not forseen.

and lastly... "Since it's entirely a Windows problem, it seems desirable 
to keep it out of the non-Windows code." ---

from the inception to first release of APR, it was never designed to solve
a per-platform issue, rather address the same computing problem for ALL of
our platforms.  In fact, it's old behavior definately qualifies as a /bug/
although your program was able to exploit that as a feature :)  So in short,
I'll definately require a bigger-picture solution to be able to back the
patch with a +1.  As I mention, the old behavior was a bug, conveinent to
a limited number of cases.

Now, I need to address the specific bullets and your proposed patch and I'll
do that in a later comment.
