Subject Special characters in Apache Server-Info-Tag (Header) after Update from 2.2.4 to 2.2.6
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2007 10:19:19 GMT

i updated several Apaches from 2.2.4 to 2.2.6. On the one hand i updated
Apache but i also updated OpenSSL from 0.9.8.d to 0.9.8.e.

The problem is that the Server-Info-Tag which is written in the ErrorLog
of the Apache sometimes contains special characters, sometimes not.

For example in one Error-Log i can find the following: 

[Fri Sep 28 12:07:43 2007] [notice] Apache/2.2.6 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.6
\x02 mod_jk/1.2.25 configured -- resuming normal operations.

Why is "\x02" written in the Logfile?

On an another Apache (same OS, same update process) i can find the
following in the Errorlog:

[Fri Sep 28 10:03:18 2007] [notice] Apache/2.2.6 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.6
\xb0\x0c:\bSSL/\x10\x91n\b\xc8\x02:\bP\xfc9\bb 20
\x91n\b mod_jk/1.2.25 configured -- resuming normal operations

Does somebody have an idea? Is it possible to change the Server-Info-Tag
or just to cut the special characters?

The problem is, that requests to these servers are blocked by the
firewall because of the several special characters in the

Thanks in advance for your help!
