Is there going to be a backport? If this may become a new DoS
episode, I am pretty convinced about the convenience of doing it.
Or if it is to hard to backport, maybe we can just try the double
process workaround (did you read my previous message till the
end, or did you stop right after "apache-1.2.X"? ;-). A lot of
people is still using 1.2 just because it is considered the most
stable release; and we have seen too many DoS attacks lately to
ignore the possibility of a new one, so I think it's worth the
Any opinions about this? Anyway, I'm going to write the
mini-respawner I mentioned, and see what happens.
