Subject Re: problem running 2.0.28 as Win2k service (was 2.0.18)

Dave, win32 canonicalization requires list/read access to each directory
above Apache directories, to the root.  It doesn't have to have access to
their contents, but it needs to be able to list files, so it can determine
that "c:\rootdir" is spelled "rootdir" and not "RootDir", so we don't
escape from filename normalization, and bypass <Directory > restrictions.

To get file attributes of directories, the 'Backup Operator' flag may have
to be toggled, or they may not have permission to open a filehandle to
the directory.
