>Environment:
SunOS infobase2 5.7 Generic sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-250
gcc v2.8.1
>Description:
If Apache is configured as a virtual host webserver, and if ProxyPass and
ProxyPassReverse are used to hide webtrees beneath the virtual server's
webtree, the caching capability of mod_proxy is disabled and the configured
cache directory remains empty.

Tests indicate that Apache is trying to cache the files passed through the
reverse proxy, however Apache tries to save these files with a NULL string
filename, which obviously fails.
