Bug

What was that about inconsistent results and insanity?

Reason number index.next! that apache RewriteRules make my brain hurt (and never work right):

Non unix line feed was exactly the problem. That's what I get for
copying and pasting that line. Thanks a lot Hans!

I just confirmed this is my own test rig. As if Rewrite Rules weren't chaotic and insane enough, apparently they are also very sensitive to ... line feeds? White space? Intent of the user? ARGH
