Signal 11 is usually* indicative of a hardware error.  Most of the time,
people who get it can make it go away by reseating the RAM in its slots,
reducing the memory and system bus speed(s), not overclocking, etc.


I suggest you check your hardware first, as I don't believe there have
been any reports of invalid memory accesses in Apache.  (The 1.3.x code
tree has been around for quite a while, after all!)


* Okay, it doesn't _mean_ "hardware error", it means "I tried to access
  some memory that I don't own, and the kernel told me off for it".
  However this is not a common occurrence in mature code written by
  experienced developers, which is why I suggest you try fiddling with
  your hardware before running apache-1.3.26 under a debugger and
  waiting for it to happen again.
