No, don't look it up, I'll have a poke around. I have done a fair amount 
of reading recently, but this commandment did not stick in my mind. I 
realise it would be foolish to mix Directory and Location on the same 
resource, but the URIs resulting from those directives bore no relation 
to each other, there is no way that /admin-cgi/ can map to /admin/*

I agree that the LocationMatch in question was ugly and silly, and I 
would not put it into production, but it should have worked, I think. At 
least, I await reason as to why it ought not to.

Thanks for your help
