Hypermart. I basically went through the source for a couple

r->hostname : s->server_hostname) in various places until it
all started working. I really don't understand well enough
the full scope of the code or protocols to know if what I
did is "patch worthy" :-) All I know is that it seems to now
we working 100% after I patched in the code to mod_rewrite to
let us change upper case Host: to lowercase dirnames.
