a simple POST through telnet not containing anything
seems to crash apache.

heres an example:

>telnet 80
Connected to

POST /~musone/index.php3 HTTP/1.0

(note two cr's, ending my post)

Connection closed by foreign host

The error_log file contains:
httpd: chile pid 9947 exit signal Segmentation Fault (11)

This was also reproduced on the php web site:

telnet 80
POST /docs.php3 HTTP/1.0

Connection closed by foreign host.

NOTE: this was originaly found because i have ie3.0 sending some bad or incomplete post data, which i'm looking into more, so it might not be as simple as an "empty" post.

Yup.  Known bug and already fixed in CVS.  Will be part of 3.0.2 this weekend.
