The problem is that php as FastCGI application occasionaly fails and produces this error log:

[Sun Nov  2 17:40:17 2003] [error] [client %ip%] (32)Broken pipe: FastCGI: comm with server "/opt/guide/" aborted: write failed
[Sun Nov  2 17:40:17 2003] [error] [client %ip%] FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server "/opt/guide/"

/opt/guide/ = the binary php compiled with the following configure command: 

./configure --without-apache --enable-fastcgi --enable-force-cgi-redirect --prefix=/usr/local/php-4.3.4RC3-test --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-openssl

I have not been able to reproduce the problem, it justs occures now and then. The apache configuration is as follows specific to php fastcgi in a virtualhost directive:

FastCgiServer /opt/guide/ -appConnTimeout 0 -processes 5 -listen-queue-depth 100 -flush
FastCgiConfig -maxProcesses 50 -minProcesses 6 -appConnTimeout 0
AddHandler php-fastcgi .fphp .php4 .php3 .php
Action php-fastcgi /cgi-bin/php.fcgi

Reproduce code:
*any source code*

We've had the same problems, using apache 1.3.29 and mod_fastcgi 2.4.0. I could _always_ reproduce the error by sending a manual HTTP/1.1 POST request through telnet. Before sending the Postvars, i waited some seconds, and then entered some random data. There was always this "broken pipe"-thing happening.

Now we upgraded to fastcgi version 2.4.2 and it works just perfectly!
