Since you have backported apache's implementation for ap_strtol, does this mean
you suspect glibc's strtol? I believe the latter sets ERANGE correctly,
therefore the whole business of replacing strtol by ap_strtol everywhere doen't
make sense. The only real fix is the patch of http_protocol.c, where *atol* is
replaced by strtol. (of course redhats' apache_1.3.23-chunky.patch does other,
unrelated stuff).
