The "Date" used in Http10 connector response, is allready 
handled by stuff I commited some time ago which use a speed hack 
and return allready processed date String if it was processed
in the same second removing need to use SimpeDateFormat at each hit.

format1123() in org\apache\tomcat\util\buf\DateTool

But the request.getDateHeader("Date") in facade is still 
using DateTool.parseDate(value) in DateTool which need
to be synchronized.

Question: should we sync in facade or in DateTool ?

This one is very difficult to reproduce (I never succeed).
We need more information on configuration. May be related with
CHUNKED. I'd like to see bug reporter to test against latest TC 3.3

Having Ajp13 or Ajp12 shutdown from a distant machine is dangerous.
We should use Ajp13 as link between web-server and tomcat and
use Ajp12 accepting only from localhost.

Couldn't we say that ALL src in native will be only in Unix mode ?

As said Costin, making mod_jk using uri or unparsed_uri is not 
difficult, but we have here 2 situations. Strict respect of spec
(unparsed) or mod_rewrite compatibility. 

Why not let the final user decide and create a new JkOptions directive
(easy). ie :

JkOptions +ForwardUnparsedURI => strict spec respect
JkOptions -ForwardUnparsedURI => rewrite compatibility

Didn't know this one but must be easy to handle....

Some patch was sent some time ago and even if AJP12 is somewhat
deprecated, I should try to commit the provided patch.

>2550  Ajp13 Connection hanging on static content.  

Should take a look at this one even. Majority of users 
use Apache to handle static data but it must be investigated

I take care of this....
