Mmmm.  I believe you misunderstood what I wrote.

  This looks to me to be a security issue caused primarily due to mod_perl.
That was not at all what I had in mind.
If you are thinking about slowloris, I believe it affects some Apache's, 
whether mod_perl is used or not.  It also affects many other webservers.
Apache with Event MPM should however not be affected.

My question is totally separated from the slowloris issue - which is why 
I posted this as a new thread.

My question is aimed at finding out if the reason why Event MPM is not 
compatible with (some or all) Apache input filters, is because it 
handles the connection with a different thread than the requests.
(Or let's say at least that this is how I understand the gist of the 
Event MPM).
So Connection-level filters are probably affected, but maybe 
Request-level filters are not.
The difference is important when using mod_perl.
