Synopsis: Could not serve documents with a set of dots in name

This was not actually related to the dots in the filename.
>From 1.3.4, Apache checks that the requested filename
does not include a DOS device name, such as AUX or NUL,
which can cause hard crashes when accessed. It should
have also checked for COM1 thru COM4, but due to a bug
this check actually matched "COM", thus denying access
to your files.

This will be fixed in the next release.
