If it may assure you...

The comments of my patch just describe the behavior I saw. There may
be better appropriate language for it.

I have test cases that show how location walk wasn't working anymore and
how the patch fixes it. I've just sent one such message to the list.

I think that best thing would be for you to try the patch and test out
the scenarios you think it will break down and report back to the list 
if that is the case? Or point out places in the code that will be
at risk?

For the record, the W3C  production web servers are using this 
patch since some time ago and we haven't experienced any i
weird behavior. Of course, this doesn't exclude problems with
server configuration options that we don't use.
