[rt-users] RT 3.4.5 FastCGIexternal Apache2

I have just installed a "captive" RT 3.4.5 using FastCgiExternalServer
hosted on Apache/2.0.52.  (perl 5.8.7, mysql Ver 5.0.18)

And it's sorta working: that is it will run, but something between the
apache and RT urls is just really strange.  I have tried variations on
all sorts of the example "How To RT ... Apache2" and haven't found the
magic bean.  Also, I am *very* vanilla in the RT_SiteConfig.pm in that
I am using the defaults for the $Web... things.  (I did try fiddling
with those, but things got worse instead of better!)

I have the RT in a <Virtualhost rt.mydomain.ext:>
and it works *IF* I use two (2) slashes at the end of the URL!
* http://rt.mydomain.ext
	Either of these will end up routed to apache's default server
	document root / homepage  which is not 'rt's!
* http://rt.mydomain.ext//
  	Either of these will get me the RT login, and I can proceed
	from there to enter RT and do whatever.  As long as I don't
	click [Home] which will send me to the default server again.

Anybody got a clue about this?
All the stuff that I *thougt* would be really problematic
(FastCgiExternalServer for example) turned out to be rather easy.
