During several hash manipulations (e.g. mainly copy) the current PHP code approx. doubles the has table size during EACH copy. Such httpd becomes quickly unusable as the size grows to 100MB (in my case) and it starts swapping. Solution (=bugfix IMHO) is simple:
--- php-cvs/hash.c-orig Sun Mar 15 09:50:43 1998
+++ php-cvs/hash.c      Sun Mar 15 09:51:23 1998

+               if (nSize <= PrimeNumbers[i]) {

Thanks for source-available excellent language!
