I would expect that the current problems are related to the traditional 
prefork MPM, and resources ownership on Unix-like systems. On W2K, the 
problem would be different since you'd most likely use a threaded model 
instead of a process-farm model. WXP should be no difference from W2K in 
this respect so I don't understand the reasons for the failure in that 

My immediate concern is with the traditional prefork MPM in Unix-land 
which is my base line. I haven't updated the mod_watch source since 
2.0.44 when it was know to work in Feburary / March. Since then 
something fundumental has changed in the Apache / APR / unix support. 
I've found that if I comment out the apr_global_mutex_child_init() call, 
everything works otherwise I get a "permission denied" error code every 
time a child process starts.
