Subject URL parsing changed between 1.3.23 and 1.3.26?
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2002 20:42:25 GMT
Hi -

	Does anyone have any idea why the following URL would work in
1.3.23 and not work in 1.3.26?

<A 
HREF="http://sunsite2.berkeley.edu:4140/WebZ/html/urlwarn.html:sessionid=01-59496-1036819798:entityartTitle=:entityartAuthor=
:entityartJournal=UNIX Review:entityartNum=n. 11, :entityartVol=v. 13,
:entityartPage=p. 137 (1
pages):entityartNewLoc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.melvyl.ucop.edu%2Fmw%2Fcgi-bin%2Fftsrv%3FCOMP%2B17507853?entityartDate=Oct,
1995:entitymyreccount=1:entityartTitle=AT&T Bell Laboratories. (the Plan 9
operating system for research and educational use)(Brief Article)(Product
Announcement)"><b>Art/Cit (Netscape only)</b></A>

The message I get from Apache 1.3.26 is:

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.

The request line contained invalid characters following the protocol
string.

And the error log shows this:

[Tue Jul  2 13:10:16 2002] [error] [client 128.32.238.84] request failed:
erroneous characters after protocol string: GET /WebZ/html

Laboratories. (the Plan 9 operating system for research an

NOTE: The URL will not work as it stands because it points to a
web application and needs to have a session established. But I guarantee
that it does work in 1.3.23 and not in 1.3.26, both having mod_ssl and 
a special module called 'mod_webz' enabled.

PS. If your opinion is that this really should go to the users list, or
into a bug report, please let me know. I couldn't really see it fitting in
either place.
