I forgot to mention that after "failed to unlock file descriptor " it 
always crashes.

[users@httpd] mod_rewrite: failed to lock file descriptor


I have Apache 1.3.26 running on Windows 2000. I am getting the following 
in my error.log: 

[Mon May 16 13:44:04 2005] [error] Server ran out of threads to serve 
requests. Consider raising the ThreadsPerChild setting 
[Mon May 16 13:44:09 2005] [error] [client] (36)Resource 
deadlock avoided: mod_rewrite: failed to lock file descriptor 
[Mon May 16 13:44:09 2005] [error] [client] (13)Permission 
denied: mod_rewrite: failed to unlock file descriptor 

The "ran out of threads" bit I can understand... we are planning on 
increasing this value. However, I'm trying to understand why I am getting 
the next two lines. FYI, there is a problem with one of our rewrite rules 
and hence is consistenly throwing this error: 

[Mon May 16 13:44:00 2005] [error] [client] File does not 
exist: e:/apps/ibmhttpserver/htdocs/en_us/callhome 

I get about 10 of these per second in error.log. Could it be that the 
threads are trying to write to the log files so fast that it's having 
locking issues?
