I am getting this error with the following configs:

apache 1.2.1
mod_fastcgi 1.4.3 or 2.0.7
fastcgi dev-kit 1.5.1 or 1.5.2 or 2.0b2 or 2.0b2.1

With virtually any combination of those, I get:
mod_fastcgi.c:3839: failed assertion `header.version == FCGI_VERSION'

And, my fastcgi's are slowly dieing.. or rather, locking up..
I know that they are locking up because I can see they are still alive but
they don't do anything.
I could not yet try the debug stuff, because I simply do not have gdb. I
will get this later and check to figure out where it hangs.
