Ok, I'll try to do that tonight.

That might be difficult to do on my machine. I remember I had trouble
to capture network traffic on the loopback device. Tried with
WireShark, but I haven't gotten it to work.
See also the WireShark Wiki  ("You can't capture on the local
loopback address 127.0.0.1 with a Windows packet capture driver like
WinPcap."). I also tried the suggested RawCap , but that didn't
work either (its homepage says under "Raw Sockets Limitations": When
sniffing from localhost in Windows XP you will only be able to capture
UDP and ICMP traffic, and not TCP).
If anyone has any suggestions on capturing network traffic on
localhost on Windows XP ... I'm all ears.
Maybe the easiest thing to do is to set up Apache on a second machine,
so I don't have to go over the loopback device ...

That would be the default on Win XP, which is mpm_winnt.
