Thanks - you're right that this is still a problem ...

The fact that this isn't an easily reproduceable problem
makes it difficult to track down. Assuming you got
the libapreq2 package through ppm via
would you mind testing out the current libapreq2
package? It contains a change that has helped at
least one other person with a similar problem.
The version hasn't changed, so you may have to
uninstall libapreq2 first, and also, stop Apache,
so that the Apache module can get
installed. Thanks.
