           Summary: Memory leak, child process exited with status 3221225477
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: sambukkaa@hotmail.com


If you would look for the phrase:
"child process exited with status 3221225477 -- Restarting", you would find 
hundreds of reports about Apache crashing under windows.
I have narrowed down the situations for this problem.

The server crashes and restarts with no reason.
At the beginning, I have suspected that the mod_perl is the cause since, I have 
got many error lines like this:
[error] <none>=HASH(0x12e7941c)

1) Only Apache installations under Windows2k, Windows2k Server, Windows xp have 
this problem.
2) After deactivating the mod_perl the problem still exists, so mod_perl is not 
the cause of this problem.
3) "Normally" the server restarts when an non-existing file is called.
This could be only a hint but not an accurate diagnostic of where to find the 
problem in the source code.

Memory problems, which lead to such unexpected crashes normally caused by 
similar situations, like overwriting a WORD with DWORD.
This type of problem would explain many strange none-existing bug reports.

I'm sorry guys that for now, I can't give you anymore details about this problem
This is a very hard to find problem :(
