I disagree.  I use mod_dbd with Apache 2.2.4 on both Windows & Linux 
with success. I don't use it with PostgreSQL in production (although I 
have tested with PostgreSQL and found no problems).

I have not experienced random failures ( far...)

I always apply the patch from comment #22 in bug 39985

For sites where idle connections may time out, I also apply the patch 
that I proposed in APR bug 42841
Be careful with this one.  It hasn't been accepted by the APR folks, and 
there's really no indication that it ever will be.

re: documenting the Apache password stuff in the WIKI.
Sure, I will get this done in a day or two.
