[xdebug-general] Xdebug problem

I am having a very strange problem trying to debug a WordPress installation
using VS.php and Xdebug. As suggested I copied the output from "php -i" into
the tool on your website and it said things were installed ok. This is a
CentOS Server running in a VirtualBox VM on a Windows 7 Pro/64 bit machine.


Here is my problem. When I start the httpd service I am never able to
connect - I get the following output in xdebug.log:


Log opened at 2013-02-17 21:26:36

I: Connecting to configured address/port:

E: Could not connect to client. :-(

Log closed at 2013-02-17 21:26:36


I can see in xdebug_com.c that either the socket creation or the connect
call fails - you can't tell which from the logged messages.


Now here is the strange part. If I stop the httpd service and start it from
the command line instead (as root) I am able to connect - but still get some
error messages:

I: Connecting to configured address/port:

I: Connected to client. :-)

Do you have any thoughts as to why Xdebug can't connect to VS.php client
with httpd started as a service? Any ideas as to what the "invalid or
missing options" might be? (I pasted my php.ini settings at the bottom)
