    We don't seem to be seeing the environment variable FCGI_PROCESS_ID.
    We are starting multiple instances of a server managed FCGI program.
    We are using the AppClass "-affinity" option as well.  Any ideas?

Are you sure you are looking in the *initial* environment?  The
process ID is sent only in the initial environment, i.e. the
variables present at process startup.  The process ID is not sent
with every request.

Run the program examples/fastcgi-echo as a Responder with -affinity
and the variable should show up.

If you are still running a server from the beta the
