+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #214571 +++
For certain rewrite rules this will lead to an endless loop. In other cases the
rewrite will "only" produce a bad result and cause pages not found errors.
I could attach my own example, but I suppose the examples in the bugreports at
apache.org (http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=38642 and
http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=33022) should be self explanatory.
Issue also exists for RHEL 3. If you need a separate bug report for RHEL 3
please clone this one.

This behaviour was made possible with the upstream addition of the
flag in 2.2.12, so we can backport that.
