Sure, I'll test that in production as soon as I have the chance  (might be a
little while -- big push on right now).  I just noticed that my production
boxes are running 1.3.41 as well, so the patch should slide in pretty good.

These days I've been seeing about 1 hang every 2-3 weeks.  When we had
slower hardware, it happened more often. Same thing when stuff gets busy....
so I'd better get the patch in before the Christmas break -- we normally
record pretty big peaks when the ball drops on New Year's eve.  I'll patch
it to call "/bin/apr-sh" or something like that, and flip apr-sh at the
filesystem level  to evaluate both shells.

Hmm. FWIW, the slower-hardware boxes also had more physical CPUs.  (quad
UltraSparc-II vs. dual UltraSparc-IIIi).
