Bug#376707: /usr/sbin/ab: ApacheBench gives segmentation fault on SSL websites with concurrency 2 or higher

Package: apache2-utils
Version: 2.0.55-4
Severity: normal
File: /usr/sbin/ab

When running ApacheBench against a secure website and a concurrency of 2
or higher, it crashes with a segmentation fault:

  % env - /usr/sbin/ab -c 2 -s https://www.amazon.com/
  This is ApacheBench, Version 2.0.41-dev <$Revision: 1.141 $> apache-2.0

  Benchmarking www.amazon.com (be patient)...Segmentation fault

Running it with "-c 1" works, but that is not half as useful...
