  Modified:    docs/manual/mod mpm_common.xml

  Added a warning to the AcceptMutex directive documentation indicating
  that the pthread option can result in a non-responsive server on
  systems that can't reclaim a locked mutex from the segfaulted child
  holding it. [Paul J. Reder]

  +     <p>On most systems, when the <code>pthread</code> option
  +     is selected, if a child process terminates abnormally
  +     while holding the <code>AcceptCntl</code> mutex the
  +     server will stop responding to requests. When this
  +     occurs, the server will require a manual restart to
  +     recover.</p>
  +     <p>Solaris is a notable exception as it provides a
  +     mechanism, used by Apache, which usually allows the
  +     mutex to be recovered after a child process terminates
  +     abnormally while holding a mutex.</p>
  +     <p>If your system implements the
  +     <code>pthread_mutexattr_setrobust_np()</code> function,
  +     you may be able to use the <code>pthread</code> option safely.</p>
