Because the additional path information only makes sense in the context of the rewritten URL, -rewrite is set to false when you request path info in the URL.
Thanks for the report. I'm just noting for the record that this fix has bee released. I confirm it's fixed in 3.43. On Sat Jan 26 21:24:45 2008, bod@debian.org wrote: Show quoted text
