I was contacted about my patch for correctly handling the -pass-header
option [1]. It turns out that my patch didn't work with Apache 1.3 - I
just updated it so that it works with Apache 1.3, too.:


And I somehow can't find my followup posting in the public archives, so
I'll repost the patch for the other issue I had with mod_fastcgi, for
anyone who's interested:

> Yes, it may not be a very good idea to send two status lines BUT a) the
> CGI specification does not forbid it explicitely and b) Apache does not
> complain when this happens with normal CGI scripts. As I see no reason
> to enforce such strictness (Apache with normal CGI doesn't, lighttpd
> with FastCGI doesn't) and I came across a few scripts that caused this
> kind of problem with mod_fastcgi, here's a patch that removes the
