I've tried the current httpd24 branch with Apache Lounge's 2.4.6 and
my own build of Perl 5.19.4. The build works fine but the test suite
crashes httpd.exe in t/api/add_config.t ("free from wrong pool"),
which I'm sure was not happening for me previously.

I must have been using an older Perl than that before. I will try some
older Perls and/or different Apaches to see if it makes a difference.
Does the 2.4.6 + 5.19.4 combination work for you in non-Windows-land?
