I was using APR 0.9.13 with HTTPD 2.0.59 and APR 1.3.3 with HTTPD
2.2.11. I also tried running the Apache 2.2.11 in my development
environment and was unable to duplicate the problem. The development
environment is running SuSE 9.0 as well, which I keep around to support
these older servers. The APR and HTTPD builds were identical as I always
build RPMs and install them. So I built the RPMs on the development box,
tested then deployed to the server where files weren't getting served.
The only major difference between the two systems that I can put my
finger on is that my development system is running a 2.6.15 kernel.
