Subject reason for the segfaults during graceful shutdown of worker MPM
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2002 05:10:13 GMT
Within the listener thread of the worker MPM, the ptrans pool passed
that's created for each connection--and handed off to a worker thread--
is a child of the thread pool for the listener thread:

static void *listener_thread(apr_thread_t *thd, void * dummy)
    proc_info * ti = dummy;
    int process_slot = ti->pid;
    int thread_slot = ti->tid;
    apr_pool_t *tpool = apr_thread_pool_get(thd);
        if (!workers_may_exit) {
            /* create a new transaction pool for each accepted socket */
            apr_pool_create_ex(&ptrans, tpool, NULL, 
            apr_pool_tag(ptrans, "transaction");

That's why we get a segv during graceful shutdown.  The listener
thread exits almost immediately, and during the thread cleanup its
pool is destroyed.  Before going away, this pool recursively
destroys its children--including the transaction pools being used
by any outstanding worker threads.

Is there any reason why the ptrans pool needs to be a child of
tpool?  If we can use a null parent for ptrans, this problem should
go away.
