In my code (see below) it is triggered if I try to set the
apr_table_t and *then* return. When returning *only* there
is no seg fault. Please see the comments in the code.  It
must be something trivial...

I recompiled apache with debugging symbols, however, I
failed to track the issue with the debugger gdb since I am
not very familiar with it. Is there an easy way to get more
info about the crash?

FYI, this is my little module:

#include "httpd.h"
#include "http_config.h"
#include "http_request.h"
#include "apr_strings.h"

static int done_once=FALSE;

static int _hook_access_checker(request_rec* r){

  if(done_once) return DECLINED;

    // ok:
    // seg fault:
    // char* uri=apr_pstrdup(r->pool,"http://localhost/abcdef");
    // apr_table_setn(r->headers_out,"Location",uri);

    // seg fault (as well):
    char* uri=apr_pstrdup(r->pool,"http://localhost/abcdef");


static void _hooks_register(apr_pool_t *p){

module AP_MODULE_DECLARE_DATA mod_hs={
  NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, _hooks_register

Yes, exactly. I restart apache, open the browser to
http://localhost and then apache crashs.
