I also got a segfault at startup with ActivePerl 1002
(perl-5.10), using an ASF apache binary and VC++ 6.
All tests passed with the latest ActivePerl 8xx, based on
perl-5.8, using the same Apache binary and compiler.
Steve, is your Perl built using the ActivePerl sources,
with the same compile-time flags as ActivePerl?
