Subject Re: Not-a-bug: .asis handler isn't driven

Still working on recreating this...

.temp is the last extension inspected by mod_mime. If temp is not in any of the tables
(content-type, charset, content-language, content-encoding) and is not a special handler,
the sub_req->content_type is set to NULL which excludes the file from being negotiated.

Ditto. If charset is the last extension and it is not configured, the file will not be
considered for negotiation.

This will cause content_type to be set and the file will be considered for negotiation,
regardless of whether the previous extensions are known or unknown. I have not managed to
get index.html.en.temp.html (or similar) to serve up but they -are- placed in the list of
negotiable files. So this looks to be a possible failure scenario even though I have not
been able to reproduce it.

Any of this ring any bells?
