Subject More on <limit> weirdness...
Date Wed, 09 Aug 1995 21:56:14 GMT


1)	.htaccess with a limit directive so:

	<limit GET>
	# a line commented out and nothing else...

2)	.htaccess protects a cgi-bin directory

3)	access to protected scripts results in SIGSEGV

I've messed with 0.8.8 some more and it seems like this ONLY happens
when the .htaccess is in a cgi-bin area.  Normally reachable (unaliased)
areads under DOCUMENT_ROOT which are protected by identical .htaccess
files are ok.

The only difference, in terms of accessing, is that the .htaccess file
sits in a part of the server for which a ScriptAlias has been defined
eg. srm.conf entries like:

	ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/local/etc/httpd/cgi-bin/

Is that at a big enough clue?

What's so special about script-aliased directories that gives 0.8.8
such a headache?
