Apache children occasionally killed with SIGSEGV


some weeks ago I noticed that child processes of an Apache 1.3 with SSL,
Perl and PHP modules loaded (everything built from pkgsrc-2008Q3)
running on a NetBSD/i386 5.0_BETA system were occasionally killed with

$ zcat /var/log/httpd/error_log.1.gz
[Sun Feb  1 20:00:01 2009] [notice] Apache/1.3.41 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.8.31 
OpenSSL/0.9.9-dev PHP/5.2.6 mod_perl/1.29 configured -- resuming normal 
[Sun Feb  1 20:00:01 2009] [notice] Accept mutex: flock (Default: flock)
[Mon Feb  2 07:59:44 2009] [notice] child pid 26424 exit signal Segmentation 
fault (11)

According to the logs this happened every few hours, probably when under
load caused by a PHP application.

After upgrading the system to NetBSD 5.0_RC2 and the packages to
pkgsrc-2008Q4 (note: Perl 5.8 -> 5.10), Apache immediately dumped core
on startup:

$ /usr/pkg/sbin/httpd -X
Memory fault (core dumped)
$ gdb /usr/pkg/sbin/httpd httpd.core
GNU gdb 6.5
Core was generated by `httpd'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

Because I wanted to upgrade Apache to 2.2 anyway I didn't debug this
further and built and installed www/apache22 and the needed modules;
Apache 2.2 starts up and seems to run fine, but I still see those
occasional segmentation faults:

$ tail /var/log/httpd/error_log

configured -- resuming normal operations
[Wed Feb 18 16:40:06 2009] [notice] child pid 23811 exit signal Segmentation 
fault (11)

Is anybody seeing this as well?  Any hints?

TIA, Jukka
