Description:
------------
We have php 4.4.2.X (as for now now - last 4.4.2-dev) installed as apache2filter on apache 2.0.52. Server is not under high load (10-100 requests per minute). 5-10% of the requests are failing with following messages in apache error_log:

[Tue Mar 28 06:53:46 2006] [notice] child pid 6805 exit signal Segmentation fault (11), possible coredump in /tmp

or

*** glibc detected *** corrupted double-linked list: 0x000000552af37bf0 ***
[Tue Mar 28 06:55:07 2006] [notice] child pid 6800 exit signal Aborted (6), possible coredump in /tmp

Crashes are not related to contains of files or something else... it loks like they are random.

Backtraces for described crashes are in Actual result section.

Unfortunately, I can not test php-5.1 now bacause our intensively used code is not compatible with php-5.1. If there are another advices, I'm ready to try them.

P.S. PHP-5.1 I will be able to test somewhat later (when system load will be less then now).
 [2006-03-28 16:59 UTC] tony2001@php.net
You said that it doesn't depend on the code.
And you can always fire up another apache instance listening on different port.

No, I don't have any other advices, because what you've told us is basically "we can see some crashes". 
Well, I'd say that's bad. But how to reproduce it?
 [2006-03-30 18:51 UTC] alexey at kovyrin dot net
I have tried last snapshot of php and now everything is ok. But last snapshot of php4 crashes as I described.

How can I help to find this strange error in php4?
 [2006-03-30 21:44 UTC] tony2001@php.net
A short but complete reproduce code would definitely help to understand and fix the issue.
