Subject: [BUG]: "endless loop in mod_proxy" on Solaris 2.x

Operating system: Solaris 2.x, version: 
Version of Apache Used: 1.2b7
Extra Modules used: mod_proxy mod_rewrite
URL exhibiting problem: 

Once in a while the daemon goes nuts with the
error_log filling with 

can't open /usr/local/etc/httpd/proxy///////////
[followed by a zillion more slashes]

that is intended to map ~user pages onto another 
machine. Note that this is an intermittent problem. 
The server runs fine for hours and then suddenly goes

I think there maybe a CGI relationship too. Usually
the page it goes nuts on contains some cgi link, but

and does not exhibit this problem.
