Drive letter issues with Apache 2.0.36 Win32 and DocumentRoot...

           Summary: Drive letter issues with Apache 2.0.36 Win32 and
                    DocumentRoot...
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.36
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Runtime Config
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jnr8375@garnet.acns.fsu.edu


First off, I would like to say that this issue did not appear in 2.0.35 (which 
I am currently using on another machine).

The problem: I have Apache installed on the C drive of my machine (Win2k 
Professional system with two physical hard disk drives).  The web files 
(.html, .pl, images, etc.) of the web sites are located on the D drive.  Any 
DocumentRoot or <Directory> that is on the D drive will make Apache fail to 
start (in /logs/error.log, it says "DocumentRoot must be a directory").  An 
example of what is currently working on Apache 2.0.35 in this configuration but 
not in 2.0.36 is the following:

  DocumentRoot "D:/Apache Web Sites/default/inet_pub"
- later in httpd.conf -
  <Directory "D:/Apache Web Sites/default/inet_pub">

(That is in the 'Main' Server Configuration Section of the http.conf file, it 
also doesn't work in any Virtual Hosts)

If I copy the files to the C drive and change the conf file to look like this 
it will start just fine:

  DocumentRoot "C:/Apache Web Sites/default/inet_pub"
- later in httpd.conf -
  <Directory "C:/Apache Web Sites/default/inet_pub">

I have narrowed it down to the drive letter causing the problems after 
extensive trial and error.  I even tried mounting the drive currently mounted 
as "D" to a directory on C called "D-Drive" to see if it worked that way.  It 
did not, so it has something to do with it physically BEING another drive.  
That, however, shouldn't be a necessary solution to this... especially 
considering that it worked just fine in all previous versions of Apache I have 
run on these systems (1.3.22, 1.3.24, 2.0.28 (beta), and 2.0.35).

I also tried to put Drive D in the path (a long shot, but just to see if it 
would work, and THAT didn't work either).

Do you have any cleaner ideas than re-mounting my drives (which did NOT work) 
on how to get this to work the way it used to on Apache Win32 2.0.35?
