I'm not sure. I just got back in town. My last build attempt was early
Saturday morning with a fresh SVN. It's not really the test that fails,
it more that Apache2 crashes and burns somewhere in during
the first tests before t/api/show.t.   I think the tests would pass if
Apache would just stay up and running.

I did have a thought about this this morning though. I'm running 2
different versions of perl on my lappy; a loaded 5.6.1, and a stock
5.8.4. Both are ActiveState installations without any of the environment
variables or paths set during the install.

I have a batch file for each version that I run that set the PATH and
PERLIB, PERL5LIB paths so I can flip back and forth during testing and

Maybe something about the modperl test suite setup doesn't like that
setup. I'm going to reinstall 5.8.4 this evening letting it setup the
path and lib variables and see if Apache2 still crashes within
