Subject Re: Apache httpd 2.4.x on Windows
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2012 04:49:08 GMT
Very cool :)

Claudio, we can point you precisely to where httpd 2.4 goes off the
rails.  We instantiate a socket connection (accept() or AcceptEx()
yet our presumptions about the state of the socket (block/nonblock
timeouts etc) were not honored.  There is a call, apr_os_socket_make()
which APR makes certain assumptions about.

Seems too fragile.  Perhaps that _make() call needs to IoCtl at the
socket to determine all of the 'anticipated' state conditions to be
able to roll on with the correct assumptions.

He's the one to blame for making node.js sing on Windows and he'd be happy to start investigating
how we can help httpd as well. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

address that :)
