This is resolved, the DEFAULTSERVICENAME is used for either install
or uninstall, but not for stop, start and restart...

I thought of one myself, the fact that Apache -k start  simply starts
the Apache service, not a service, on WinNT.  I don't want to change
this behavior in 1.3.13.
Finally, the observations of hokey Registry error messages is also

The (final?) patch is attached, I will commit this afternoon if noone
objects.  I am happy with my own results, but especially pleased with
how thoroughly Andrew Braund has tested this patch!

I am STILL looking for testers, however.  Please do -not- complain if
the patch fails to perform to your Win32 requirements after release,
if you don't jump in and try it before we roll 1.3.13!!!

Attached is the patch, plus a zip file for Win32 folks to be able to
drop in the sources and test.  I know it took me a while to get up
to speed with the patch utility, so this should make life easy.
