Worker-MPM error log: the listener thread didn't exit

           Summary: Worker-MPM error log: the listener thread didn't exit
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.36
          Platform: Sun
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: worker
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: erich.prchal@siemens.at


With Worker-MPM on Solaris (both 2.6 and 8) I get error messages
"[crit] the listener thread didn't exit" every few minutes.

The system was under heavy load (10-18 child processes)
with (intentionally) non-keepalive requests.

By adding traces I found that the dummy_signal_handler in worker.c 
does get called 10 times for the correct thread, 
but the function apr_proc_mutex_lock never returns.

I think this behaviour does not deserve a LOG_CRIT 
which might unneccessarily alert the administrator
as it can occur quite normally:

According to the man page for pthread_mutex_lock:

"If a signal is delivered to a thread waiting  for  a  mutex,
 upon return from the signal handler the thread resumes wait-
 ing for the mutex as if it was not interrupted."

And for other lock types which do not behave the same way
proc_mutex.c simulates this behaviour by making a loop over EINTR.

By the way, should proc_mutex.c set PTHREAD_MUTEX_RECURSIVE
if such is defined on the system?
The man page says the behaviour is undefined for default.
