Interesting. I assume that the error is being triggered for requests
from ordinary web clients?

Is your "hr" script triggering any sub-requests?

My last-ditch effort to find the cause would be to run httpd -X under
gdb and set a breakpoint at that error message. Another option would
be simply to replace r->the_request with r->uri in the error message
so that you can see what is really triggering the problem.  (That
might actually be a good patch in general; it is silly to test the
validity of one thing and then report a possibly different thing in
the error message.) My best guess is that something in your script is
causing r->uri to get rewritten to an invalid path.
