Hi Patrick,

Thank you for the response.  My error was in the details, as you 
suggested.  I was using this statement for the loader:

zend_extension_ts = 

On my boxes, PHP was built without thread support, so I should have said 

zend_extension = 

Note the (_ts).  Now everything is working great.  Attention to detail...
