before calling exec or similar. So something around apr_proc_create() seems to go wrong, or
possibly the apr_procattr are not write.

Unfortunately yes, at least most of the time. The proc tests never 
failed. I added debug output to apr_proc_create(), the crash happens in


Digging further shows, the crash happens in running the child cleanups 
for the pconf pool (in the 9th cleanup). Maybe it it related to the 
testreslist failures, because some of them happen in 
apr_pool_cleanup_kill. Just a wild speculation.

I will try to stop the process before the crash and investigate with the 
debugger. Unfortunately the core if written doesn't seem usable.
