Versions of apache before 2.0.50 have a slight problem where requests
that get 414 errors don't have their request-line properly terminated.
 This can cause some random characters from memory to be written to
the log file.  It is nothing in particular to worry about, but the
problem can be eliminated by upgrading to 2.0.50.
