As the Apache group has not fixed the bug amn there is no redhat
supplied patches that fixes it in version 1.3.12-20, the bug must be
present in this version as well.
Check the Apache bug archive for bug number 6268 and 5562. Also check
the latest changes to wu-ftpd for the changes that makes this problem
appear in apache and why this change was made to wu-ftpd. These
reports also givse information on how to reproduce the problem, as the
problem may not have shown up with the sites you have tested.
The entry for PR6268 in the apache bug list contains a patch that is supposed
to fix this. The Apache group has not reported whether this has been tested
by them or if this is indeed the proper patch for this problem. It works
for me, though.
