Hm, how did he do that? The DLL search order in WinXP SP1 and newer is

    1. Directory from which app loaded (executable directory)
    2. System directory
    3. 16-bit system directory
    4. Windows directory
    5. Current directory
    6. Directories listed in the PATH environment variable

So no matter what PATH says, the old apache2\bin\libapreq2.dll in the 
executable directory should be found first. Maybe that always happened and 
we only didn't notice it because it didn't crash by chance?

There's a recent related change by Randy in
but that should't make a difference in this case?
