Never mind.  I just learned that the problem is actually in FastCGI and 
it is a feature, not a bug!  I'm sorry to trouble you all.  FastCGI is 
so fast because it keeps scripts in memory, so if I modify a script, the 
old one is still in memory and obviously won't get changed.  I need to 
HUP a script manually if I want my changes to show.  Anyway, thanks for 
looking into this for me.
