   It's been busy on the list lately, so I'm not at all surprised
that nobody's had a lot of time (or interest, perhaps!) for this
little bundle of fixups.  Unless someone wants to send me an
explicit -1 vote on my prefork-only patch now (see link below), I'll
keep working on matching ones for the worker, event, and winnt MPMs,
then commit them to trunk and wait for responses at that point.
