Subject Re: New Windows mod_perl binaries available

This is a known issue related to the winnt MPM.  You're likely seeing
your worker segfault.  On linux, there are usually extra processes so if
one segfaults there's another process that can step in fast enough.  But
on the winnt MPM, there's one master and exactly one multi-threader
worker.  So when that worker blows up, the master needs to completely
tear it down, and bring it back up, which is what you're seeing.

Look for a bug in user-code, not in the mod_perl binary.
