Um... I forget the details but I seem to remember having problems trying 
to run apache under Valgrind when I was working on that file handle leak 
that you were referring to in your first email. In the end I think I had 
to recompile a version of php_mapscript for use with the PHP CGI and 
then run that under Valgrind.
