Synopsis: Redirect Command In .htaccess Drops Concurrent Requests From The Same Client

This is not a good way to test Redirect.  The worm is throwing requests that are deliberately
designed to foul up request parsing.  Some of them are getting 400 (Bad request) responses,
which is perfectly legitimate.  The ones that are getting 404 responses are probably correct
also, although I'm not going to take the time to decompose that absurd URL according the the
RFC rules.

If you can generate this problem with any real client sending real requests, please let us
know.  Otherwise, you are really just wasting your time by sending redirects to a worm.  There
is no way they will be followed.

Thanks for using Apache!
