An interesting point.  But no, I don't think that's a bug -- the
browsers are behaving correctly.  They have no way of knowing where
the path-info begins.

If a resource is capable of accepting path-info, it really should
have the responsibility of correctly coding internal relative
references so they appear as absolute to the client, and avoid
this ambiguity.

Do you have specific cases on the Apache site where this is
done?  Because they should be fixed if so..
