May me my fault. It's a system that I didn't use to administrate. I  
upgraded it from 6.2-REL to 7-STABLE in place, and recompiled  
packages. But there was a lot of litter. I'm just wondering if that  
could be a problem.

Just in case I've done a thorough cleanup, recompiled needed ports,  
and included debugging support in Apache. Let's see what happens.

And please accept my apologies if this  has been a silly false alarm :)

Thank you very much,
