Use 2.1 if you can. This is a bug in 2.0, which wasn't considered so 
important so far that the fix it would be worth backporting ;)

FWIW, the bug is, that Apache 2 was forked from the 1.3 code base just 
before 1.3.10 and nobody bothered to implement this in the 2.0 tree. In 2.1 
it was re-added, as said.
