I will respond again, as I already did to your usenet query.

It's using the config files in /usr/local/apache/conf.  I have not changed
the compiled-in defaults.  I have tried it with both the distributed
*.conf files and with my own with the same results (but you already knew
thisk, because I told you).

(Which follows from the fact that I had the problem with the *.conf files
distributed with Apache)

Yes.  Thank you.  This is what I was looking for.  Removing the duplicate
user entry (which, incidentally, caused no problems for 1.2.5) fixed this
problem...and introduced another.

Now, httpd exits immediately with the follow error in the logs:

  semget: No space left on device

Which, I suppose, beats an endless loop.
