It's tricky-  search the mod_perl list's archive (~8 months ago?) for
a conversation between Doug MacEachern and Andrew Koenig
regarding these segfaults.  Their discussion is also on 
the perl5.porters list (IIRC, the p5p discussion has more info
than the mod_perl archives).  This segfault was affecting
PAUSE; I don't know how Mr. Koenig resolved it.

Doug put together a few patches, and I applied one of them to apreq
last month, but I don't know if it was the correct fix.

Please keep the apreq-dev list informed regarding your progress.
It'd really help if you posted the particulars of your situation
to apreq-dev, so at least we'd have a detailed record.  If you've 
compiled perl5.8.0 with ithread support, you might try disabling
that and see if the segfaults disappear.

Good luck, and thanks for the help!
