#489: Assert error in BAN_CheckObject()

Comment (by waschtl):

 OK. I'm giving r4087 a whirl - I installed it yesterday.

 As to your question: The URL-string that was called when the crash
 occurred (/VirtualHostBase/http/www.xxxx.de/xxxx/VirtualHostRoot//)
 contains only lower-case letters [a-z]. But, other URL-strings contain
 plusses and percent-signs. The following for example (bogus hides
 alphabetic characters of the same case):

 GET /bogus_kss/Bogus%20Theme/++resource++bogus.cms.kss

 This is the reason vcl_hit exists in addition to vcl_recv.

 Does this answer your question, or did I miss something?

 Now, it just remains to wait for another crash.
