[OS/2 Apache security bug details deleted]

I just checked something similar in Unix by protecting a directory
containing uppercase letters and then requesting a URL for this directory
without capitalization, and Apache gave me a 404 like it should have.  I
would bet that the problem is in the OS/2 port of Apache and is caused by
case insensitivity (unlike Unix) in some of the C library functions
related to file system access, and case sensitivity in the access checking
