[mapguide-internals] Installer stuff... thoughts about Apache crash?

Trac is down; thought I'd post this before I nodded off and forgot.
1. PHP stuff:
In php.ini:
  extension_dir = "C:\Program Files\OSGeo\MapGuide Web\Php\ext"
  session.save_path = "C:\Temp"
where both of those would be replaced with appropriate vars.
C:\Program Files\OSGeo\MapGuide Web\Php should be added to the system PATH.
Or are we supposed to be using php_MapGuideApiEnvConfig.dll as the PHP extension now, instead of php_MapGuideApi.dll ?

2. Apache problems
Apache on its own and with the PHP API works great.  I can get into the MapAdmin, and do all kinds of cool stuff.  However, as soon as I hit the mapagent.fcgi Apache crashes.  Are we missing something from the mod_mapguide configuration?  Has something changed?  Is there a difference between the headers that the module is built with and the distributed Apache binary?  If anyone is brave and wants to take a look at this, the current installer (built by me) will be here in about 20 minutes:
http://www.jasonbirch.com/temp/mginstall/MapGuideOpenSource-2.1.0-Unofficial.msi <http://www.jasonbirch.com/temp/mginstall/MapGuideOpenSource-2.1.0-Unofficial.msi> 
I've attached the httpd.conf that I'm working with (it's not autogenerating yet), and you'll have to manually set the PHP values above as well as the MENTOR_DICTIONARY_PATH env var.
Man, this thing is so close I can taste it...  Jackie's going great guns; awesome work!
