Subject Event MPM: Spinning on cleanups?
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2005 07:14:17 GMT
I finally got around to upgrading to trunk w/ the Event MPM on one of my
machines. Within a couple hours of starting it, I had a process
spinning, and consuming 100% CPU.

Backtrace from the spinning thread:

APR: Trunk
APR-Util: Trunk
HTTPD: Trunk

Best guess is that we corrupted a bucket brigade by double freeing it,
or something of that kind.  This is definitely a new behavior since the
async-write code was merged into trunk.

It is odd that we could of double-free'ed something on the connection
pool. Maybe it isn't a double-free issue at all...

I'm too tired to debug much of it tonight. Maybe later this week I will
dig deeper.
