in my case, XAMPP (the ApacheFriends dist.) fails completely because of
the FTP daemon, but otherwise is fine.

Apache Win32 when installed as a windows service works well, and I have
only seen it fail in _very_ limited situations (ie 30000000000 requests
for "admin.htt" - an IIS page) but it came back and was running nice and
fine with about 1 minute of downtime (how long it took for the machine
to restart the service!)

I got one error that came close to it - it was related to memory in my
case, apache doing a malloc to big for my 32 megs of memory avail to it
(caused by mod_php - uploading a 45 mb file!)

could it have been the perl script running pushing a file over the system?

Wamp is a port of the LAMP server idea to Windows - i'm running the
latest (only really works with apache 2.2.3 because of a special
mod_wampadmin addon)

in my case, the WAMP part is really this:
Apache 2.2.3 with some extras to handle talking to the control daemon
using a special device (a named pipe really)
PHP 2
MySQL 5
Windows XP Home build #2600
PEAR (for PHP/Perl/Apache comms apparently - im not sure)

as long as theres no security problems with the stale version, im fine
with it.

Hope that helps
