Subject Why is free() being called on a mutex lock???
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2001 20:34:42 GMT
  In the function apr_sms_destroy() in the file apr_sms.c the function appears to be using
free() to destroy a lock which has already been destroyed.  On about #597 the follow code

    /* Remove the memory system from the parent memory systems child list */
    if (pms) {
        if (pms->sms_lock)
        if ((*sms->ref = sms->sibling) != NULL)
            sms->sibling->ref = sms->ref;

        if (pms->sms_lock)
    /* Call the pre-destroy if present */
    if (sms->pre_destroy_fn)

    if (sms->sms_lock)
        if (pms->free_fn)
            apr_sms_free(sms->parent, sms->sms_lock);

In the last outer if statement a call is made to destroy the sms->sms_lock which should
completely destroy and free the lock.  In the next if statement a call to apr_sms_free ()
then tries to free it again.  When traced through it ultimately calls free() on sms->sms_lock
which should have already been destroyed by the call to apr_lock_destroy().  Am I missing
something or is the code trying to free a lock that has already been destroyed?
