           Summary: mod_proxy and case insensitivity conflict
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.34
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_proxy
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: rms@1407.org


I had the following rules:

   Rewrite /fu http://Backend/fu
   ProxyPassReverse /fu http://Backend/fu

The request that's made to the backend (captured with tcpdump) showed the
request was made to http://backend/fu

The backend returned a Location: http://backend/bar in the headers, which wasn't
captured and corrected to the frontend's site, but instead let it go to the
browser which naturally couldn't resolve the hostname.

Since hostnames are case insensitive, even if by human "error" a case is
defined, the efective configuration should consistently use the same case (all
undercase, or respect user defined case).

My workaround was, naturally, to use only lowercase.

This is a minor bug, but it really was annoying before we found out what happened.
