Subject Re: Runaway httpd process (fwd)

  Got another one of these, same spot (although in mmap this time). Just
FYI. I assume your thought about it being an incompatibility with the sfio
header is the culprit and I'll try to avoid that problem whenever I can get
1.3b2 running. (My fastcgi stuff won't work right, so I'm still trapped at
the 1.2.x level.) If someone has time to spend on it, maybe they can
investigate possible weird sfio interactions with Apache. Anyways, just
thought I'd let you know it happened against as an additional data point. :)

  Thanks,

-Jonathan
