the generated code spits out Apache::XSLoader::load for Apache classes and
APR::XSLoader::load for APR.  both of which take care of proper
bootstrapping inside and outside httpd.

'use APR ()' combined with APR::XSLoader::load will load APR/
outside of httpd.  whereas Apache::XSLoader::load is a noop outside of

if that's the case, it should be APR::SubProcess.  it should only be named
Apache::SubProcess if it references ap_ symbols.

looks like either a corrupt stack, dereferencing a NULL function pointer,
or function pointer called with prototype mismatch.

could also be because the current APR::PerlIO cannot be used outside of
httpd since it references modperl_global_get_pconf().
but i would expect an 'unable to resolve symbol' error from the linker,
not a wacky blowup like that.
