> I experience some infrequent crashes at stopping an Axis server using
>   axis2_http_server_stop(...);
>   axis2_transport_receiver_free(...);
> Now it looks to me as if
>  - axis2_http_server_stop() just closes the listening socket of the 
>    listener thread and sets "stopped" to true
>  - then, the listener thread (in axis2_http_svr_thread_run) returns 
>    from axutil_network_handler_svr_socket_accept()
>    and checks the worker:
>     if (!svr_thread->worker) ...
> But:
>  - axis2_transport_receiver_free() indirectly calls 
>    axis2_http_server_free() which in turn destroys and frees 
>    server_impl->svr_thread
> I'm not sure yet whether I understand this completely, but it looks as
> if then (depending on which thread is faster) the listener accessed
> memory now already freed.
> In a first approach I moved in my own server prog the
> axis2_transport_receiver_free() after starting the HTTP server, i.e.:
>   if(axis2_transport_receiver_start(srv, env) == AXIS2_FAILURE)
>   {
>     // err handling
>   }
>   printf("Listener returned\n");
>   axis2_transport_receiver_free(...);
> This changes things a bit, now the crash comes later in
>  axis2_http_svr_thread_run
>  axutil_thread_pool_get_thread(..., axis2_svr_thread_worker_func
>  ...
>  axutil_stream_free
> But the question is: Is it right that the listener continues at all
> after the accept() returns a failure?
> I have inserted another test for "stopped" and, if so, break the
> listener loop and, so far, it seems to be ok.
> axis2_http_svr_thread_run(...)
> {
>   ...
>   socket = (int)axutil_network_handler_svr_socket_accept(env,
>                 svr_thread-> listen_socket);
>   if(svr_thread->stopped)
>   {
>     break;
>   }
> Does that ring any bells? Could somebody more experienced please think
> about that scenario (while having a look into the code)?
> I'll do more testing and, hoping that all keeps working, create a defect
> +patch.
