Anyhow, here's the minimum patch I'm suggesting for this for now... unless
someone wants to wrap their head around this subrequest stuff.  I think
the code should probably be the same as the code in mod_negotiation, and
it should all be copied out and put somewhere common.

But there is a corruption possibility, so we should at least patch that
for now.
