I came accross an interesting problem with the suexec code... I think I 
have a temporary fix in place, but it would take some research on the 
apache code base to find out whether or not it's the correct answer :)

On line 513 of util_script.c, there is a call to execle which appears to 
be incorrectly handled...  When suexec is called by a URL such as<script>, suexec recieves an argument for 
the script name that is garbled; after tracing it through the code, I 
found that it's fine up until this execle call, where apparently it is lost.

(the specific variable in question is argv0).

By changing the execle call to match the one a couple of lines up, it 
seems to work.

Again, not sure if this is the correct solution, but it may be of some 
help.  Now to fix more stuff in suexec.c itself *g* :)

It appears that suexec is a little inconsistant on handling user 
directories, unless I'm not understanding something about them...
