Hi, I’m writing a apache module and uses apr hash tables but my hash key keeps getting overwritten, here’s the code I use


if(!(torrent = apr_hash_get(torrents,hej->info_hash, 20))) {

torrent = apr_pcalloc(pool, sizeof(struct torrent));

apr_hash_set(torrents, hej->info_hash, 20, torrent); }


I set a watchpoint with gdb and the key got overwritten in make_array_core. Here is a backtrace.


(gdb) print (char *) 0x820ea20

$183 = 0x820ea20 "wl^\004Uf>\027O2HP<~\"/\220"

(gdb) watch *0x820ea20

Hardware watchpoint 17: *136374816

(gdb) c


Hardware watchpoint 17: *136374816


Old value = 73297015

New value = 0

Any suggestions how I should fix this?
