Understandable - unfortunately only Brad weighed in, and he forgot to
indicate exactly which of the several rewrite patches he tested.

I'll review tonight and see which I have time to +1 myself.  I would ask
for extra eyeballs before we incorporate any patches at this late date.
Bugs hanging around is bad - but introducing new regressions is worse.

By the way, anyone can suggest that an issue is a SHOWSTOPPER
to the next release, although it better be a showstopper.  I would suggest
you snip those explicit backports that you believe would resolve this bug
to the list, the section in 2.0-dev's STATUS can be hard to follow.

Oh - testing before/after with httpd-test/perl-framework really helps justify
the patch - especially if you can create a scenario if none exists already.
