Description Jeremy Orem 2008-03-31 17:58:44 UTC
Description of problem:

Using mod_rewrite in conjunction with mod_cache, when a requested object is
cached, the path to the cache object is calculated by hashing on the requested
URL (http://localhost/real). However, when retrieval of the object is attempted
on subsequent requests, the path to the cache object is calculated by hashing on
the requested URL *plus* the query string in the target of the RewriteRule.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Additional info:
Apache has already fixed this and backported it to 2.2 upstream.  Can we include
the patch?  mod_cache is kinda broke without it.  Thanks!
