5.8.0-RC3 still produces the SEGV with apache 1.3.26, mod_perl 1.27,
Apache::Request 1.0 and MaxRequestPerChild > 0.

My recipe to reproduce the SEGV currently is: Set MaxRequestPerChild
to 1 and request a static image.

Unless the problem is fixed before 5.8.0 comes out (i.e.~Thursday), I
fear we must document the fact:

 Use mod_perl 1.27 or higher.
 
+=head2 mod_perl 1.27 sometimes produces a segmentation fault

+Setting MaxRequestsPerChild to 0 seems to work around the problem.

 Don't panic.  Read the 'make test' section of INSTALL instead.



Jim, in any case it would be great if you could release a new
Apache::Request with the two fixes that Doug has posted to the
list[1], so that people need not fall into the two already fixed
traps.--Thanks!
