that's to be expected.

you have to compare the request_rec->handler field to the handler name
you specified in the config with the SetHandler directive. For
example, if you have:

<Location /mylocation>
    SetHandler myhandler

in your config, then your module will need to do something like this
in whatever function you registered as the handler function:

    if (strcmp(r->handler, "myhandler")) {
        return DECLINED;
