>Organization:
apache
>Environment:
Windows 98 SE, german version, newest patches of date October 12th, 2001
>Description:
I've discovered the problem when i was playing around with Newspro 3.8 (script available at
http://www.amphibianweb.com/newspro/). it writes news to a file called "news.txt" in html
format which you include into your web pages by a SSI include virtual="cgi-bin/news.txt"
this works on my unix box, but not on windows.
instead, the page containing the SSI call will never be displayed - timeout.
also, Apache starts a dormant instance of Notepad which only shows up in the Task Manager.
After accessing the faulty page for a few times the system crashes completely.
>How-To-Repeat:
i've written a short sample page. you can download it from
http://www.fmi.uni-passau.de/~mueller/apachebug/include.zip
>Fix:
no idea
