Subject: WWW Form Bug Report: "CGI's don't die when client connection is closed" on Solaris
2.x

Submitter: whamlin@indiana.edu
Operating system: Solaris 2.x, version: 
Version of Apache Used: 1.0
Extra Modules used: mod_env
URL exhibiting problem: 

Symptoms:
--
If a client requests a URI that references a
CGI script and then, before the CGI script
completes, closes the connection, the CGI script
will still execute to completion.

For standard small CGI scripts, this is mostly
a non-issue.  If you are doing database access
and generating large reports, however, it 
can greatly degrade performance.

This bug fix would be of immeasurable benefit
to Indiana University and other users of our 
size and calibre.

Thanks!

  - Bill
