OK, current state of play is this:

With fresh svn check-out, all tests pass OK if I skip t/perl/ithreads, 
but with t/perl/ithreads the server crashes on that test.

As before, this sequence reliably fails:

perl t/TEST -verbose t/modules/reload.t t/perl/api.t t/perl/ithreads.t

It still fails with the attached much-shortened conf file.  Note that 
I've commented-out a top-level PerlInterpScope directive, in line with 
recent changes.  If I re-instate that directive then t/perl/ithreads no 
longer crashes, but t/modules/reload fails as described above.

Are we sure that the PerlInterpScope directive should not be at the 
top-level?  If so, then reload.t is OK and we still have ithreads.t to fix.

I'll try whittling down the conf even further.
