           Summary: mod_deflate fails on proxy requests
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.0-HEAD
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_deflate
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: bill+apache@bfccomputing.com


There's a bug in core.c that causes mod_deflate to fail if the request is
proxied, e.g.:

  RewriteRule /(.*) http://localhost:8080/$1 [P,L]

the response is not compressed, even if gzip encoding is requested.  This breaks
common setups for e.g. Tomcat.

This was investigated and fixed in 2.2 here:

  http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=rev&revision=327793

I've applied the same change to a 2.0.54 production server and it's working
correctly here, having served greater than fifteen million deflated pages with
the change.  I'll attach the patch I applied here.
