Doh! From apache 1.3.x CHANGES file:

Changes with Apache 1.3.18 [not released]

  *) SECURITY: The default installation could lead to mod_negotiation
     and mod_dir/mod_autoindex displaying a directory listing instead of
     the index.html.* files, if a very long path was created
artificially
     by using many slashes. Now a 403 FORBIDDEN is returned.
     [Martin Kraemer]
     
Of course, 1.3.19 _was_ released. Ages ago.

Cheers,

Ben.
