Every MPM using POD (pipe of death). It's defined in /server/mpm_common.c:

| This function connects to the server, then immediately closes the

BTW to OP: No, downgrading to 2.0 won't help; the function 
dummy_connection exists in the 2.0 branch, too. The only difference is 
that it is not logged as "internal dummy connection".
