Did not yet try, but without "-k" ab doesn't use HTTP Keep-Alive, and I
think the reports mentioned that connectionTimeout influenced things. So
all test scenarios should probably include HTTP Keep-Alive. Try with "ab
-k ..."?

Still the whole poll stuff is platform dependent, so it might be you
will not be able to reproduce the Windows crash even when the test
scenario is exactly the same as there.

I currently can not really investigate in Windows, sorry.
