This occurs on two systems:
uname -a = SunOS interval 5.4 Generic_101945-10 sun4m sparc

uname -a = SunOS morgan 4.1.2 1 sun4c
gcc 2.5.8
Relevant config items:
UserDir public_html web /share/IntervalShare/Projects/*/public_html /share/Inte
DirectoryIndex index.cgi index.html index.htm

References to /~user eventually fail with name too long. Access log shows

Note that this occurs whether index.cgi exists or not. If it exists it is not
opened (utime not updated).

This all worked fine with 1.3b3 with the same config files. Changing the
DirectoryIndex directive to a single file has no effect. Changing the
UserDir directive to a single (simple) directory makes the problem go away.
