I've started investigating this myself, and your statement is incorrect.
server_type() occupies lines 2018 to 2036 of http_core.c in apache  The bug I reported here is the same as that reported by
Dann Frazier in bug #200698.

Why a recompile fixed it, I don't know.  A recompile of still
fixes it (and btw means that the patch from Dann isn't necessary ...).
Could this be some exceptionally strange gcc bug?!

Let's summarise:

Apache in testing does not work against glibc 2.3.1-16
	or 2.3.2-5
Apache 1.3.27-0.2 rebuilt in unstable against glibc 2.3.2-5 headers
	with gcc 1:3.3.2ds0-0pre1 works against glibc 2.3.2-5.
Apache 1.3.27-0.2 rebuilt in a testing chroot against 2.3.1-16 headers
	with gcc 1:3.3.1-0pre0 does not work against glibc 2.3.1-16
	or 2.3.2-5

This does seem to point to gcc, not glibc, being the problem.

And also, btw, points to me being mistaken about glibc triggering
this problem.  My apologies.  I guess I got apache and glibc on the
same update.
