Using Apache 1.3.2, as a web proxy, the proxy module would often 
crash when the browser stop button was pressed, or when swithing 
to a new page before the first one had finished loading.  This 
bug is listed in the official Apache bug database.  Apache stays 
running, and spawns another proxy - so it isnt too bad.  The 
proxy would crash several times per browing session.

Recently I needed to add the control parameter "Listen 593" to my 
httpd.conf   so that I could access a secure newserver with 
netscape on port 593, as well as having the default "port 80" 
open.

All crashes have ceased.  (yay!).  If I comment out the "Listen" 
statement, then the crashes resume (about 1 for every 2 mins 
browsing).

I cant explain it - but this may help someone.

Cheers,
Shane
