	I looked through my rc* scripts, and found that
/tmp is getting nuked after rc.local (hence after the httpd
starts, as I am starting it from there.)

	Did that, no apparent effects. Still serving web pages, all
three servers are running (1 normal, 2 SSL), load at the usual 3-4, 1.
Removed the files about 10 minutes ago, or so.

	perhaps the htstatus files should by default go in a log
directory in a future release? .. which also leads me to the core dump
issue. I noticed that core dumps go in ServerRoot -- but ServerRoot is
*purposefull* not writeable by nobody, the uid of the webserver, so
the dumps got lost.. When I was trying to preserve dumps I tempoarily
mad eserver root mode 1777, but that's not a good way to have things
all the time. Perhaps a LogRoot directive may be useful, which is the
dir where all the logs go by default if they are not hardpathed, and
where coredumps go.. (I plan on doing that for the servers)
