That's exactly what happened.  I think it was mostly a case of being tired
and not thinking clearly when I should have stepped away from the keyboard
for a bit.  Which is also why I posted too quickly and without all the
necessary details.

This is Apache 2 - I'm only using Listen and it's been working fine with
just that directive and not Port.
