Try to do one without the http protocol. Since you are doing this from
the command line, try to do a file:// access and see if it is still
occurring. At this point, I am not deep enough in the back end to be
able to tell you anything more than start removing layers. In this
case, you would be stripping out the http layer and possible issue in
Apache configuration.

After that, I am going to have to bow out and hope someone else in the
list can help. Make it an education for both of us.

Frank
