Subject: FastCGI / Apache problems 

mark, thanks for the reply.  we're interested in getting to the bottom
of the problems and will definitely share with you any and all
materials we can come up with.

getpeername is a system call on SunOS.  i couldn't find a prototype or
definition anywhere.  fclose is also "missing" though gcc adds it to
its internal headers.  take a look at Apache 1.1.1 src/conf.h at the
end, they define all sorts of groovy things.  Sun Quality Software.
gotta love it.

doesn't core dump.

yes, does core dump.  when it does it again, i'll take a closer look
at what is going on.

the list of known problems is really helpful.
