The problem is a SEGV if you have

  DirectoryIndex /index.html
  Redirect /index.html http://whatever/

This is because mod_dir does a sub-req lookup for /index.html and gets a
302 status and "Location" in headers_out, then returns 302 which applies
to the _main request_, which does NOT have a Location entry in headers_out
so send_error_response dumps when it processes the location (i.e. NULL).

This patch moves the Location header into headers_out of the main request,
if mod_dir is about to return a redirect status. 

While this appears to fix this particular bug, is this another case where
the 'promote sub-req' stuff now going into mod_negotiation should be used?
