           Summary: Backslash produces a 404 error instead of going to is
                    mod_rewrite
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.4
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_rewrite
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: csaba@alum.mit.edu


If the url submitted to my apache server contains a backslash, then I get a 404
error.  For example:
Not Found
The requested URL /DE/d:(^|;)\w{7}(;|:$)/o:-DE;US;-US was not found on
this server.

The URL is not handed off to mod_rewrite (As I would think it should be) to be
processed by my rewrite rules.  Setting AllowEncodedSlashes causes apache to
convert the backslash(es) to forward slashes, which is not what I want.

My band aid solution to this is to set
ErrorDocument 404 "/search.php"
and then in search.php append the third line (the first two already being standard):
$path_info = @$_SERVER['ORIG_PATH_INFO'];
if (!$path_info) $path_info = @$_SERVER['PATH_INFO'];
if (($ru=$_SERVER['REDIRECT_URL']) && !$path_info) $path_info = $ru;

Still this solution is cumbersome and not very nice.  Shouldn't apache wait
until the rewrite rules can't deal with the original URL to issue the error?
