------- Additional Comments From wrowe@apache.org  2006-12-07 11:48 -------
"Is it riquired to list up-level directories? Why server can not "live" only in 
its directory? Why not only check given path exists, without listing of parent 
directories?"

Because Apache cannot be permitted to confuse e:\Apache2Server with e:\Apache~1
or the HOST of various conflicts which can occur because windows chooses to be
CAST INSENSITIVE, but moreso because it's also NOT CANONICAL.  The file path
"e:\Apache2Server\" is equivilant to "e:\Apache2Server.", for example.

Therefore we **INSIST** on canonicalizing the path.  If we have nothing but list
access to see dir FOO exists, this isn't a security problem.  If we accept both
e:\Apache~1\ and e:\Apache2Server as two different names, there IS A HUGE
security problem.

Marked as invalid.  Parent directories must be list/traverse accessible to
differentiate them on Win32.
