I think that is the configuration that he was using.  I haven't tried
it myself, but I don't see how it can work.  If the Location header
doesn't have an absolute URL, then there is no way for apache to
determine which origin server it came from.  Hence the problem
reported here where only the last "ProxyPass /" has any effect.

Of course, Nick, you know more about this stuff than me, so perhaps
you can correct me.
