Sarge -> Etch Upgrade and apache2

Thanks to Debian bug 407171, if you had mod_proxy installed in apache2, and upgrade to etch, it’ll also install mod_disk_cache, which means your /var partition is going to fill up quite quickly.

This happened to 2 CLUG servers.

I don’t think this is the correct behaviour, and I’m even more suprised to see that it the appearance of the bug is documented in a bug-report.

I've also been bitten by this.

I've also been bitten by this. It seems like mod_disk_cache is experimental, and the "garbage collection" isn't actually implemented, so there's no way to keep the disk cache size under control automatically!
