"RewriteEngine off" forbidden if "Options -FollowSymLinks"

           Summary: "RewriteEngine off" forbidden if "Options -
                    FollowSymLinks"
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.23
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: mod_rewrite
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: apache@georg.czedik.net
                CC: apache@georg.czedik.net


"Options -FollowSymLinks" combined with "RewriteEngine on" (in ".htaccess") 
results in the error message "Options FollowSymLinks or SymLinksIfOwnerMatch is 
off which implies that RewriteRule directive is forbidden".

I suppose, that this is o.k., although I did not find it specified 
in "http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_rewrite.html".

But also "Options -FollowSymLinks" combined with "RewriteEngine off" results in 
this error message and I this, that this is a bug.

Now you might ask, why I want to use "RewriteEngine off",
although this is the default, but I have a reason for this:

In the root directory of my (virtual) server I have "Options +FollowSymLinks" 
and I want to use "RewriteEngine on" (this is no problem).

But in the subdirectory "cgi-bin" there seems to be implicitly
"Options -FollowSymLinks" and even an explicit "Options +FollowSymLinks"
does not work (WHY???) and therefore I want to set "RewriteEngine off" there, 
in order to be able to use the "cgi-bin" directory without getting the above-
mentioned error message.
