LimitRequestFieldSize/LimitRequestFields Issue

           Summary: LimitRequestFieldSize/LimitRequestFields Issue
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.46
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mattmurphy@kc.rr.com


Apache 2.0.46 and prior suffer from an error in the request field handling.  
Apache treats:

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost
Accept-Encoding: [2000 characters]
Accept-Encoding: [2000 characters]
Accept-Encoding: [2000 characters]
Accept-Encoding: [2000 characters]
Accept-Encoding: [2000 characters]

AS

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost
Accept-Encoding: [2000],[2000],[2000],[2000],[2000]

This bypasses the LimitRequestFieldSize directive.  This also works on headers 
that normally shouldn't use multiple options (e.g, User-Agent).  I am not 
certain of this, but wouldn't such concatenations also bypass 
LimitRequestFields?  This is no major deal, but perhaps the docs should be 
updated to indicate this behavior?
