It's a fun bug to think about in the abstract.  If it's ap_send_size (the
routine that likes to say things like "  2k") that dropped those clues then
it's wonderfully weird.  A serials like that implies it had state, and that
would suggest a bit of uninitialized stack it keeps rediscovering each
time as autoindex loops over the files.

I really want the %4 to explain how rare it is, that drew my attention
to the elegant, but subtle, things in that printf stuff.  What
big fat macros you are and look at you side effecting things and using
misc. state!

Time to go read to the kids.  - ben
