Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52605] LimitRequestLine not taken into account when talking to CGI script

I came across this issue when diagnosing a problem with the IkiWiki
CGI.  Details of the IkiWiki issue can be found here (with pointers to
a similar bug in another software):

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=638009

In essence, the problem is that the IkiWiki CGI script generates an
HTTP 302 response, with a very long `Location: ...` line (~16k;
basically it embeds the text of the whole Wiki page in the http:// URL
as a query parameter).  Then Apache (I was using the Debian "squeeze"
one) truncated the line, apparently at ~8k.

The IkiWiki bug has been corrected since (it shouldn't have issued a
redirect in the first place), so current version will not exhibit that
behavior.
