Ok, I've got a mininal but fresh stock redhat 4.2 
installed now; and a ./Configure on dist-ed Apache 1.2 
and am getting no joy; any specific modules,  
libraries you are including/linking, etc, etc.. ??

On a not so virgin 4.1 I am getting no reproduction either.

Any more help you can give me to track this down ? I'd love
to because it has buggered one of my customers for a while
and they had very similar moans on 1.1. for quite some time.
They moved to FreeBSD; but at considerable expense and I 
would not mind moving them back in line.
