Hi Stefan,

I'm not using redmine; the problem impacts all documents including
static documents on the lighttpd side.

Access directly to lighttpd directly from web browsers appears to work
with the several I've tried. The only failures I've encountered are
when "reverse-proxying" through apache and it fails with all web
browsers in said configuration. This fails 100% of the time when
attempted with lighttpd and various releases of apache

I do not recall seeing any log entries on the Lighttpd side. The log
entries on the apache side are in the bug ticket.

I'm using this directive in a .htaccess file on the apache side to
trigger the reverse proxy:

RewriteRule     ^https/([^\/]+)/(.*)$   https://$1/$2   [P]

I then point a web browser to:

Worked fine with no configuration changes on either side in lighttpd

If for some reason apache actually works with lighttpd when you try to
repeat the described behavior, please send me the configs you used.
I'll be happy to chase it further and narrow it down.
