Firepages, I hate to bring this up publicly, but it may be the best way to get the word out. Hopefully you can fix this and make a quickie release.
Apparently, there has been a major denial-of-service attack hole discovered in Apache servers, both of the 1.x and 2.x varieties.
There is an upgrade for Apache that fixes this problem.
FP, is it practical to put together an emergency phpdev update that includes a properly configured Apache server to fix this problem? Your testbed server is popular enough to be listed via PHP.net, so maybe fixing this would be a Good Idea.
