Subject [PATCH] apr_file_dup() doesn't set mutex on Win32
Date Thu, 16 Sep 2004 15:54:40 GMT
I've just been experiencing problems using a tracing facility in 
mod_perl 2 (latest CVS sources) with Apache httpd-2.0.50.

It seems to boil down, at least in part, to a bug in apr_file_dup() on 
Win32, namely that the mutex member of the new apr_file_t * is not being 

The attached patch (against whichever apr is in httpd-2.0.50) seems to 
help, although there is still one situation causing a crash that I 
haven't been able to fix yet.

Please see this thread on the dev@perl.apache.org list for more 
details:  http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=109524076100001&r=1&w=2.

Is the patch correct?

Is there another bug lurking here somewhere that is still causing the 
crash with MOD_PERL_TRACE=g described in 
?  Sorry, I've no idea how to reproduce that crash outside of mod_perl 
land, or even if it definitely is an apr problem.

The MOD_PERL_TRACE feature is apparently working fine on Unix/Linux.
