I think I can answer this one, maybe, from the scars I have trying to
get sshd to work on my machine.

Make sure that you pass an argument to the apache executable so it
doesn't fork itself when it first starts up, much like -D for sshd. I
don't know the right option for Apache, and can't take the time right
now to look, but I'll bet that this is what is happening.
Yeah that's what's happening. The problem is that apache doesn't have
any equivalent to -D as sshd has.

You mean the -k option added since apache-1.3.24-3?

$ httpd -v
Server version: Apache/1.3.24 (Cygwin)
Server built: Apr 27 2002 13:23:27

$ man httpd
httpd(8) httpd(8)

httpd - Apache hypertext transfer protocol server

httpd [ -X ] [ -R libexecdir ] [ -d serverroot ] [ -f con-
fig ] [ -C directive ] [ -c directive ] [ -D parameter ]

httpd [ -h ] [ -l ] [ -L ] [ -v ] [ -V ] [ -S ] [ -t ] [
-T ]

httpd is the Apache HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP)
server program. It is designed to be run as a standalone
daemon process. When used like this it will create a pool
of child processes to handle requests. To stop it, send a
TERM signal to the initial (parent) process. The PID of
this process is written to a file as given in the configu-
ration file. Alternatively httpd may be invoked by the
Internet daemon inetd(8) each time a connection to the
HTTP service is made.

Don't see a -k option. Perhaps I need to find the "-3" version of Apache for Cygwin. It's funny because my local installation seems to have 1.3.24-5. Man page bug? What exactly does -k do? (Just tried it and it seems to solve the problem beautifully)
