FWIW, I found that turning off Perl's malloc() prevented segfaults in  
mod_perl 1 on Solaris. This was about 5 years ago. I guess I  
shouldn't be surprised that this is still an issue. I personally  
never use mymalloc for this reason.

I thought that this was supposed to have been fixed by better-tuned  
makefiles in 5.8.x., though.
