Bug#421901: apache2 ignores +includes directive if it is first on options line

Package: apache2
Version: 2.2.3-4

On an apache2 directory configuration the following does not work any more:-

<Directory /var/www2/sites/test.hirst-magnetics.com/>
                Options +Includes Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews 
                AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all
                DirectoryIndex index.shtml

This use to work on sarge and stopped after i switched to sid.

results are in /var/log/apache2/error.log :-

[Wed May 02 11:54:58 2007] [warn] [client] mod_include: Options +Includes (or IncludesNoExec) wasn't set, INCLUD
ES filter removed

And SSI directives were not processed.

A simple workaround seems to be to do the following :-

Options  Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews +Includes

if +Includes is the first line item on the options line it was not processed but moving it seems to fix the problem.

Couldn't see this bug in the apache2 bugs list so though i better send it in.

Best regards
