Stipe, All,

I thought I'd give the latest cygwin snapshot (Febury 20, 1.3.21s) a go and
see if that fixes the problem, as Corinna made quite a few fixes in the
fhandler_* code. I've been running the Apache service for just over one hour
and twenty minutes, and although I can only access it from my machine due to
firewall restrictions, it is working quite well. I haven't done anything out
of the ordinary to get it up and running, unless this is considered out of
the ordinary:

- Changed the User/Group directives in httpd.conf to system/system.

And as Dylan Cuthbert suggested, I kept the KeepAlive directive/set to 'on'
and changed the Timeout directive to '10'. I'm accessing four documents at a
refresh interval of five seconds and have not seen an error what so ever.
I'm strace'ing just in case, too.

Just thought you'd like to know ;-)
