------- Additional Comments From Bjorn.Wiberg@its.uu.se  2007-03-07 01:43 -------
It should be noted that "AcceptPathInfo on" has side effects which are clearly
undesirable, and therefore it would be nice if this error would be corrected in
mod_speling (mod_speling requesting/granting path info information instead of
one having to enable it globally?).

For instance, when accessing directories such as /directory/ (no index page)
with mod_autoindex showing the directory listing one can happily append
/documentation/documentation/documentati... (etc.) to the URL and Apache will
serve the /documentation/ directory... Imagine a (broken) webpage with relative
links to "documentation/" and a URL crawler which descends deep and you'll get
the idea. It will continue appending "documentation/" to the list of URLs to
discover and digging deeper and deeper but never reach an end...

Best regards,
Björn
