a php file containing nothing but:




loads about halfway, then stops. the server running php+apache then goes into 5 second "freezes" and 5 second 100% usage peaks. These happens consistantly and hoses the system untill all other processes cant function.

The error logs show nothing, and the event viewer (windows)shows nothing. It also happens when i use:


on a fairly small script.

I am using the Apache2filter test module.

I can't currently show you an example of this becuase: my server just went down, and im at work (it's at home) and it would crash if i showed you! When i get home i will recreate the bug a 3rd time to make sure im not crazy.

From reading other bugs about corrupted output on XP systems, i tried one of the WORK AROUNDS that do not fix the problem, but hide it (which is good enough for me untill an actual fix is found).

I did the suggested (and disputed by method of having the content gzipped. It does HIDE the problem (in their bug and in mine). But like said, it is not recomended.

phpinfo() does not hang, and i have no corrupted output, with gzip on.

I'm having trouble reproducing this problem on Linux, with either the threaded or non-threaded MPMs.  (Yes, I know you said you saw it on WinXP.)  Can you generate a backtrace on this somehow?  Interrupt the httpd task that's running out of control with MSVC's debugger and find out what it's up to?  (Sorry I can't be much more specific on this, I don't know much about MSVC.)  I assume you read , right?

Yes, i read about the bug.

Since my original posts, i have upgraded to the non-beta (stable) PHP 4.2 and using the expirimental modules. No problems since.

Ah, this seems to be fixed then. Let's close this one.
