Good to know. I don't use rewriting usually so I was not sure if I understood the docs correctly.

Yes. access.log still says : - - [02/Jun/2012:17:52:48 +0200] "GET /archives/voir.html?file=/data/pdf/J_2005_01_039.pdf
HTTP/1.1" 200 229837 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:12.0) Gecko/20100101

but I guess that's normal. Hopefully they don't get a 404.

No, it's embedded perl (like PHP but with the Perl language).

down maybe stracing will provide further clues as to what is going on? The output would be
too long to paste in a mailing list, but sometimes looking through it can provide ideas for
further investigation.

stop the strace, and take a look at strace.log.

Ok. I've never done that before but there's a time for everything :-)
I'll give it a try tomorrow.

Thanks again for your time.
