Pubcookie, RT 3.8.0, cookies getting mangled?

Ok, after playing around for a while more I am at a state where it
appears pubcookie detects that I have no cookie, redirects me to the
login server, cookie is set, browser is redirected back to my rt server,
pubcookie can see a session cookie and then I get dropped to the rt
login page. It seems rt is mangling something once I get redirected
back (perhaps due to me mangling something in config). Debian etch,
apache2, mod_fastcgi, rt 3.8.0

First is there a page inside RT I can look at to see what it thinks the
Apache Variables being presented are? When I go to a test-site the
authentication sets up the REMOTE_USER as I expect but I want to be sure
in this site it is correct.

Second I include my Virtualhost config and RT_Siteconfig for
scrutiny/mocking. J

<VirtualHost *:443>
