Agreed on both fronts. Definitely a bug - when I wrote the patches for
AllowOverrideList, I thought I had tested this scenario but might have
missed it? If you don't mind, I'd love it if you could share a full
trace8 log (email just to me if you don't mind) for the request that
reproduces the problem so I can compare to my environment. On the second
topic - changing the file name is a quick and easy workaround to the
problem. There's still a very slight efficiency that can be gained by
fixing the bug in that the directories aren't checked for the presence
of the files, though, so I'd still want to tackle it from that angle.
