I don't know of any other 64 bit issues with snprintf, but there are other
issues with the code on 64-bit platforms.  I think it is things like
assuming sizeof(*foo) = sizeof(int), etc.  Probably differs slightly
between platforms.

Shouldn't.  I think Dean(?) has a seperate patch for the second one.

Sigh.  Perhaps.  I have not been able to look into it too much.  All I
know is that there are times when things appear to be defined as a virtual
host with an IP but Apache doesn't think they are.  Could be user error,

See PR#130.  The issue is how a base directory without a trailing / should
be treated.  I've included my original message below.  I think behavior 2
is probably better, but like 1 because it is easier to fix.  <g>  I am
planning on fixing it to work like 2 today or tomorrow.  I have not posted
the location of the problem code.

Original message:

Message-ID: <>

If you have a map file like:
        base foobar
        rect ../foo/bar.html 0,0 499,77

mod_imap will go into an infinite loop.  Fixing it isn't a problem and
I know exactly where to do what, but should the above lead to:

        1. foobar../foo/bar.html

        2. foobar/../foo/bar.html

...which may end up being translated directly to foo/bar.html, but
that doesn't matter.

I don't use imagemaps much.  Does anyone actually use the first in
something like:

        base file
        rect 1.html 0,0 10,10
        rect 2.html 10,0 20,10

to get file1.html or file2.html?

Behavior 2 is more intuitive to most people I think, but they would
figure it pretty quickly if behavior 1 was used as long as their
server doesn't go into an infinite loop like it does now...
