I'm sorry, but -0 for now.  I just added a bunch of tests to the
httpd-test repository that use mod_bucketeer to test mod_include.  They
all work before this patch, but the last two (the most brutal ones :) fail
after the patch.  The ones that now fail basically put every single byte
of an include virtual tag into separate buckets.  On HEAD, the tag just
silently disappears for some reason I haven't determined yet.

The upshot is that we now have a good framework in the httpd-test
repository for constructing worst cases for mod_include.  Paul, can you do
me the favor of making a test that demonstrates the conditions that are
segfaulting for you that were fixed by this patch?  It's really easy to
set these things up now.  mod_bucketeer is my new best friend.  :)

With more tests, I think we'll be able to pin down whatever the remaining
issue is pretty quickly.
