I didn't try the patch because of the discouraging comment 7 from Joe
Orton that follows it :-) Also, by the author's own admission the patch
is really a hack that I am uncomfortable applying to an
enterprise-critical webserver.

Recall that the *identical* config works fine with apache 2.2.6 (and
every version prior). The vulnerability to this Solaris feature/bug only
emerges with the recent upgrade to 2.2.8.
