Subject Re: mod_rewrite && apache 2 problem

as you can read some mod_rewrite related postings before, mod_rewrite 
seems so have a lock-problem in apache 2. Whatever the real problem is: 
The request hangs when using RewriteLog, in addition only "initial" 
entries showed up, no processing path as I knew it from apache 1.3.x 
(although I set RewriteLogLevel to 9). With turned RewriteLog off, at 
least the rewriting worked, but not 100% as I expected.

Ok, but thats not the import rewriting part.

Sure it does, thats part of a regular expression. [a-z0-9]{4} means, 
that there have to be 4 characters each containing only chars from a to 
z and digits from 0 to 9.

Unfortunatly even this doesn't work. Maybe apache 2 is just to buggy at 
this time, I will try with apache 1.3.24 now, I hope that works.
