SunOS rrzs8 5.6 Generic_105181-11 sun4m sparc SUNW,SPARCstation-10

Compiler: egcs-1.1.1
I have the same problem as Michael Reutter

  Apache/1.3.4 (Unix) PHP/3.0.7
I could let the user control indexing himself. Extract from http.conf:

  DocumentRoot /www/home   
  <Directory "/www/home">
    Options FollowSymLinks IncludesNOEXEC
    AllowOverride AuthConfig FileInfo Indexes Limit
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

.htaccess in "/www/home/images":
  Options +Indexes

That works beautifully. But on Apache/1.3.9 with http.conf:

  UserDir /www-cgi/daten/home/*/public_html
  <Directory /www-cgi/daten/home/*>
    AllowOverride FileInfo AuthConfig Limit Indexes 
    Options MultiViews SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec

and the same .htaccess-file, I get an "Internal Server Error" (500)

The only difference I see is that the Directory is in the one case in the 
normal document tree, and in the other it is a user dirctory.

In any case I consider it as a bug.


PS I've also noted that "IncludesNOEXEC" is more rigorous in Version 1.3.9 - it
does not let me include PHP3 files any more. In 1.3.4 it did not complain.
That is good, but it would be nice to know what has changed, even if it's an
improvement. Or have I overlooked a change note?
