Subject Re: [PATCH] headers not sent when subrequests come from ap_die
Date Mon, 12 Nov 2001 17:31:57 GMT
I realized I didn't give a specific reproducable case here (since I had
already found the problem):

try turning on Authentication for <Location /> - that way you will get a
401 while trying to serve up the 401 ErrorDocument
(ErrorDocument 401 /error/HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED.html.var).

You will see that you get a 401 error back, but no headers... which is
bad.

That is assuming you are using the default httpd.conf that has all the
ErrorDocument stuff in it and mod_include is enabled.
