Subject Re: Apache 2.0.51 util_ldap
Date Fri, 17 Sep 2004 17:11:00 GMT
One small correction:

When I remove the global mutex stuff I no longer have the case where 
both the worker and parent processes crash, so that's another 
improvement on Windows.  Unfortunately, I still have the case where 
Apache hangs, however.
