Have you managed to sort this yet? If not, I noticed the mime type was
returning "application/x-httpd-suphp", from the suPHP FAQ:
Q. I have installed and configured suPHP, but PHP scripts are still
not executed. Instead of returning the script output, the source code
itself is returned.

A. Please make sure you have not only setup the file extensions using
the AddType directive but also have registered the MIME type with
mod_suphp using the suPHP_AddHandler directive.

I am not sure if ^ will help, but it might be worth looking into. :)
