Subject [users@httpd] Reproducible bug in Apache 2.0.49
Date Thu, 25 Mar 2004 19:46:16 GMT
I have found a reproducible bug in Apache 2.0.49 under linux that does 
not exist in Apache 1.3.x.  Below is the script to reproduce it:


echo "Content-type: text/html"
echo ""


while [ "$var0" -lt 200 ]
  echo "$var0 "
cp /tmp/hh /tmp/h
cp /tmp/h /tmp/hh
  var0=`expr $var0 + 1`
echo "It is done\n<P>"

exit 0

This will run to about 69-89 and then hang through a web browser 

This problem is in Redhat 8.0, Enterprise 3, and the source code 
download from and compiled.  It is also reproducible in 
perl.  This script works fine from the command line or under Apache 
1.3.x.  You can substitute different commands for the cp.  I first found 
it under while trying to ftp several, > 100 files, then I shortened the 
code and reproduced it using cp and mv.  The original problem was when I 
built a ftp command file containing all the files to transfer and then 
it errors at > 50 files. 

Please help.
