Project: Expat XML Parser
Category: None
Status: Open
Resolution: None
Bug Group: None
Priority: 5
Submitted by: Nobody
Assigned to : Nobody
Summary: Expat causes segfaults in Apache

Details: When Expat is compiled into Apache, and you add mod_perl or php or Sablotron into Apache in some way or another, Apache can segfault at random times.

Clark Cooper is aware of the bug, but I wanted to make sure it was logged here on sourceforge.

This is caused (I believe) by multiple instances of expat in each of these modules. The task that I'm working on right now is to produce a shared library version. (Then after that to put out a new release of XML::Parser which can use it.)

Clark: I'm nominally in charge of the Expat that is incorporated directly into Apache (i.e. I put it there :-). I'm happy to make the changes on the Apache side to get this working. Just let me know what you'll need...

I bet it is because Expat is *not* thread-safe

pardon... I'm on drugs... I hadn't seen the nasty #defines for userData and
the like... ignore that last comment.

Any update on this one?  I'm getting core dumps all the time from Apache when because of this...
