Description:
------------
If you don't set the env variable PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN, PHP doesn't default to 8 as README.FastCGI suggests; it doesn't bother spawning extra processes at all (default is 0).  After PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS, PHP segfaults.

No apparant useful information from core or ktrace, other than seeing that it's not forking and falling over after exactly PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS; the fix looks fairly easy, though.. except maybe at children = 0 :)

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

Not a code bug. The previous behaviour was correct. Unfortunately, the bogus code change has made it into PHP 4.3.7. Newer releases will revert to the proper behaviour.

The original behavior of not behaving as documented and crashing after a fixed number of requests was correct?  Silly me, sorry about wasting your time.
