Hmmm.  The Apache 1.3.6 that came with TurboLinux 4.2J was 
configured as an open proxy by default.  I discovered this when
examining my httpd logs and found that some weenies at a few
Japanese ISPs were using my workstation for a private proxy.
Not anymore, but they haven't stopped trying.  You'd think after
getting a 403 for days, a person would give up.  I fired off a gripe
to on that one (regional ISP in Shikoku).  We'll see what
they say.

If you have TurboLinux 4.x, check your httpd to see if it's
configured as a proxy.  Better check other versions too, just
in case.
