I found this one with the help of the new pool debugging stuff. I saw a case
in the debug output of a potential sequencing error. Specifically, most pool
patterns will look like:
While the above is quite possibly valid, it is certainly suspicious. Adding
some info to the debug pool output, I verified the ordering problem.
To assist with future ordering problems (automatically), I just checked in a
change to apr_pools.c which trashes a pool structure at destroy() time (even
in the non-debug case). That change caught the problem below.
However, I think that I'm still seeing a problem on the server side of
things, which I'm continuing to track down.
