Thanks for the look, Alan.

On the gibberish, this is from the latest 2.2.7 release that we just
downloaded this afternoon.  Has the fix been made available in that source?

Moving on.  Turns out that the problem is in the default
"sites-enabled/default" file installed as part of the "make install". 
There's a stand-alone "reject" at line 160, just after the eap section
that was causing the rejects.  Any idea why that's there?  Is it a bug?
