OK, finally getting time to have another look at this...

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=52191 summarises
the situation - basically the SHM filename used now is not unique
enough when there are multiple ISAPI Redirectors on a single website.
My current proposal is to use the extension_uri to distinguish between
the configurations (on the assumption that this will be the same on
every site in a web server farm).

cheers
