Subject Re: Solaris hangs with 0.6.5?
Date Mon, 26 Jun 1995 17:09:25 GMT

OK..the sun guys are in serious bug crunch mode, and this is not an
official optimization.  I wonder if we can get a sunsite to run apache
and get the attention.  It will be a while :( before real time can be
spent on this...sigh...
