Subject: Re: Fastcgi 2.0 beta bug...

	The problem is as follows: every time the server starts, we need to 
recreate mbox for use by the dynamic apps.  So, the code unlinks the mbox
and then recreates it, and then proceeds on.  What I think is happenning is
that unlink() fails since we are wwwrun, but file was created by root, but
the fastcgi does not check for the return type of the unlink().  The 
possible workaround would be to modify the code as to allow the deletion by
the group (say www) and add root and wwwrun to that group.  

						Hope that was of some help.
