--- Comment #3 from Daniel Gruno <> ---
Poking at this old bug.

This isn't really an httpd error as much as it is a browser quirkiness. If you
look at the source code for the HTML, you will see that the address isn't
http://apache/ but instead //apache/, which is what you would expect the parent
of //apache// to be. That [insert browser name here] translates that into
adding a http scheme in front of it, well that can't really be helped much by

Having said that, the behavior, at least in 2.2 and 2.4 are that any excessive
leading slashes are now removed when the parent URI is translated. I'm not sure
whether this also applies to 2.0, can someone confirm/deny this?
