I'm responsible for mod_actions, I'll send an ack.

The third one was on mod_auth_msql, which isn't mine. Someone else can 
take that.

He doesn't say what machine/compiler/etc, he is using (I'll ask him in his
email), but it works fine for me. What his code does (the second version)
is to basically replace a !strcmp(..., NULL) with !(...), where ... is a
*char from a table_get. I think I'll end up using his version, beacuse
it's more compact, but is there any reason the former would result in a
seg fault? On my HP-UX 9.04 box, I can run Apache + mod_actions without
any Action directives anywhere, and it works fine... can anyone
confirm/deny this?
