Hi Rüdiger,

Yes, an IP address in the HTTP Host header is quite unusual, granted!
But this is only how I discovered the issue...

The same problem exists for the following virtual host configuration,
assuming that v2.test.local has a proper DNS record that resolves to a
local IP address:

Listen v2.test.local:80 http
NameVirtualHost v2.test.local:80
<VirtualHost v2.test.local:80>
    ServerName v1.test.local
    DocumentRoot /srv/v1
<VirtualHost v2.test.local:80>
    ServerName v2.test.local
    DocumentRoot /srv/v2

In this case a HTTP/1.1 request for http://v2.test.local/ is served the
content from /srv/v1. Again, the problem is, that, if it matches, the
parameter from VirtualHost seems to override any ServerName or
ServerAlias directive.
