Well, I have been running the new libc for months now without a single
problem with the Apache/1.1 code.  Some general apps did break when the
new libc went in, but this was because the apps themselves were poorly
written.  Cleaning up their memory allocation code fixed things nicely.

My guess is that the problem is in the Apache 1.0 code somewhere.  A libc
malloc problem would have been caught by now.
