I am POSITIVE I am using apache and I'm very familiar with the
application. The access log format is not one you're familiar with because
I've customized it to suit our needs. Ironically, I snipped access_log
entries so I wouldn't have to explain the custom log format.

Anyway, some good news: It's partially working!

I changed the config to look like this:

ScriptAlias /bin/ "/usr/local/data/redirect/bin/"
<DirectoryMatch "/usr/local/data/redirect/bin/.*">
  AllowOverride None
  Options ExecCGI
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all

Unfortunately, if I have a script in a directory called "index.jsp" apache
returns 404. That exact same script - "index.jsp" - executes on the exact
same configuration in apache 1.3.x. Here's the other thing. The error_log
issue *is* troubling. Sometimes 404s appear in the error_log and sometimes
they don't.
