Damn my editor - I believe this was indeed the culprit!! Thanks for
the suggestion - it worked like a charm.

Now, the question is what variable holds the requested document. I
looked at the %ENV hash and found that SCRIPT_NAME, not PATH_INFO,
holds it.  Is there any other way to get the name of the document that
was not found? Perhaps I can modify CONFIG.PI3 so that the name is
passed in the same config line that specifies my error-handling perl

Thanks again!
