------- Additional Comments From beecher@columbia.edu  2005-08-01 22:24 -------
We saw this bug when some file servers were offline for maintenance.  When accessing a symlink
that 
points to a not-mounted filesystem Apache 2.0.53 gives the 403 Forbidden error instead of
404 File Not 
Found.  The error log contains "Symbolic link not allowed".  The error reporting script could
not be 
invoked because "a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use..."  This is a
serious problem 
for us because we use the error reporting script to inform users that system maintenance is
underway.

Bug 1: Apache 2 gives 403 Forbidden instead of 404 File Not Found when symlink points to not-mounted

filesystem
Bug 2: error logs says "Symbolic link not allowed" instead of "no such file"
Bug 3: error reporting script can't be invoked due to 403 Forbidden error
