To clarify: I can't reproduce any problems with r1773861 in the first 
place, even with ErrorDocument. I agree that r1773862 (and r1773865) 
work for me; I just don't know what makes them functionally different. 
In my attempted test cases, I can't find any case where the rr->pool 
used during the internal redirect differs from the original r->pool.

Can you send me a config snippet that reproduces the loop with 
ErrorDocument? I'm not arguing against your followup patches; I just 
want to make sure a correct test case gets into the suite. :D
