Great! I'll look into this. If I can tweak the php.ini settings to do 
the right thing, I'll be happy. Otherwise I'll go with PM's suggested fix.

Either way, thanks! I've been tearing my hair out over this, and I don't 
have much left to spare!

I suppose I could also switch back to mod_php. I put FastCGI, in place 
to work around an unrelated problem I was having with mod_php. Since I 
get the same behaviour with FastCGI, I'm now having to assume that 
there's a bug in the new Apache relating to the ServerAlias directive.

My next stop is the Apache users group to ask about it.
