Apache 2 root process core when it received a signal (for example HUP or USR1 at logrotation) when php module loaded.

Bug is reproductible at least with Apache 2.0.44 .45 .46 or .47 and with php 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.3.3RC1, CVS-STABLE.

Bug is reproductible with linux 2.4.20 or 2.4.21 but NOT with the standard RedHat 9 kernel.

To reproduce the segfault :
kill -HUP "pid of apache root process"
apachectl graceful

Error log show : "[notice] seg fault or similar nasty error detected in the parent process"

Reproduce code:
php configure : ./configure --enable-debug --with-mysql --with-ldap --with-gettext --enable-force-cgi-redirect --with-apxs2=/tmp/apache2/bin/apxs --enable-track-vars --with-config-file-path=/etc

standard php.ini

As apache core only with any custom kernel I tried (but not with redHat one), here is my kernel configuration :
My kernel configuration :

I found few people on newgroup's archive with exaclty the same segfault. None got solution.

Expected result:
Expected result : apache should reload it's configration

Actual result:

I can't reproduce this (I have kernel 2.4.19 SMP).
What is the version of the stock RH kernel this works with?

 [2003-07-09 16:30 UTC] php at grooky dot com
The segfault comes out with any kernel I build (whom by the way works fine with any other apps, including apache without PHP)

I wasn't able to reproduce it on my standard RH9 kernel (2.4.20-8)

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:

This doesn't sound like something we could really fix in PHP
but do try the latest CVS just in case. 

 [2003-07-09 16:50 UTC]
And try it with this configure script:

./configure --with-apxs2=/tmp/apache2/bin/apxs --disable-all --disable-cli --without-pear

 [2003-07-10 03:44 UTC] php at grooky dot com
No differences with php4-STABLE-200307100730 and disable-all

In fact, this bug migh be a dup of #17414. Similar backtrace and exactly same problem.

I have the bug on RedHat, but #17414 was found on debian also.

According to the bt, it really seems to be PHP's fault.

What was the configure line used to configure Apache2?
(mainly I'm interested if you run it with "prefork" mpm or not)

 [2003-07-11 03:11 UTC] php at grooky dot com
with prefork, it doesn't do it since 4.3.2
with worker, it does it with the lastest CVS
 [2004-03-09 02:53 UTC] markus dot reinhardt at wsl dot ch
On worker mpm this bug still exists even with the newest CVS.
Someone know a bugfix?
