No.  Apache is returning a document that matches NONE of the languages you
requested.  "fr" on the server does not match "fr-ca" in the Accept-Language.

Apache is making a best fit.  It just hapens to be using an algorithm you don't
like. Of course, you can
get the algorithm you want simply by configuring your browser correctly.

See the ForceLanguagePriority directive in Apache 2.0.  It is highly unlikely
that this feature will make it into 1.3.

I'm still a little curious about why you get the french version rather
than "no acceptable variants", but the bug you originally reported
does not exist, so I will close this.
