I'm sorry to say I don't know the answer to your question, but I'm 
wondering if you really want to run the ModPythonAppServer, as opposed to 
the ModPython adapter which connects to a separately launched app server. 
That is the usual technique (e.g., your choice of adapter, plus the WebKit 
app server) used to run WebKit, because you can then restart the app server 
separate from the web server.

You should consider embedding the app server inside a web server to be more 
experimental, and I suppose the docs should reflect that.

In any case, it might help with diagnosing your problem if you could try 
the ModPythonAdapter and see if that suffers the same problems.
