Not quite sure what happened here...

Everything was fine yesterday, now none of my links are getting redirected. I
upgraded to 2.11.0, I suspect that's the cause. More specifically, i've got my
money on r7887.

Each click logs one of these in error.log:

(-1)Unknown error 18446744073709551615: [mod_asn] Error retrieving row from
database for, referer:
(-1)Unknown error 18446744073709551615: [mod_asn] Error retrieving row from
database for, referer:
[mod_mirrorbrain] Error looking up addons/skin/Basics-Vision.tar.gz in database,

after a 'mb scan -a -j 4', note that:

'mb probefile addons/skin/Basics-Vision.tar.gz' turns up a bunch of servers.
as does
'mb file ls addons/skin/Basics-Vision.tar.gz'

All links are exhibiting this behavior, not just this one.

Other info:

I was about to ask you to run with "MirrorBrainDebug On" in Apache's directory
context, but I just learned in IRC that you already figured out what's broken:

due to a missing include, the new compile fix for APR < 1.3 is not effective.

New release to be done asap...

Fixed in trunk

Fixed packages are available.

On another note, some of the error messages in the log are from mod_asn, which
should not be directly influenced by the recent regression. If it is, it might be
a side effect of the database adapter being misused and becoming confused. Do
those messages go away?

mod_asn might need a similar APR 1.2 fix as mod_mirrorbrain, even though it might
not be immediatly surfacing as a bug because mod_asn always retrieves only a
single database row. I noticed that ASN lookups were working correctly (telling
from the HTTP headers of your server) even with the broken 2.11.0.

The mod_asn messages are also gone. Great!

So mod_asn seems to work either way. Probably because it retrieves only one row,
and after that it clears the cursor by accessing the next row. Also the latter
seems to work in either case, because if clearing the cursor does not return -1,
an error message would be logged.

I just reproduced locally that the lookup is correct in both cases. However, I'm
thinking that a fix might be sensible, for whatever side effect this could have in
the database adapter.

So, I committed this now:

(For the record, issue 7 is where the bug was dealt with first.)
