Hmm. If I recall how I wrote this correctly, if the IP address given
in or resolved from the name given in the virtual host matches the IP
address resolved from the ServerName directive or (if none is given),
resolved from gethostbyname(), it will not use it as an address-bound
virtual host, only a Host-header-bound one.

So I'd check to make sure the main server has a ServerName directive,
then name sure that the IP address (or addresses) does (or do) not
resolve to the same address as the virtual host's name does.

I'm a bit unclear as to what you mean. Are you saying that making the
main host the virtual host and the virtual host the main host fixed
it? Or did he just remove the virtual host entirely?
