 The problem is not with mod_autoindex, but with mod_dir's handling of the
 internal redirect. Mod_dir knows nothing about the files listed in
 DirectoryIndex: It just tries to do an internal redirect to each file
 listed until one succeeds. The internal redirect looks different than
 mod_include's, for example, in that mod_include knows when it is calling a
 CGI script and so sets the redirect's environment by calling
 Mod_dir's does not have this foreknowledge and so (ultimately) only calls
 which does not setup PATH_INFO, etc.
 From what I can tell from reading the code so far is that mod_dir needs a
 special internal redirect is more aware of the parent environment. That is
 the directory's uri is the path info to the script at the given directory
