Package: libapache2-mod-auth-pam
Version: 1.1.1-6.1
Severity: important

When running with the apache2-mpm-worker engine, and with /etc/pam.d/apache2 using pam_ldap.so for auth and account, server threads frequently die with double-free errors in the apache error log. Usually only happens when the server is getting hit with heavier loads. Errors disappear when switching over to apache2-mpm-prefork.

Recommend stopgap resolution is to force a conflict between libapache2-mod-auth-pam and apache2-mpm-worker, thus requiring the user to use the prefork engine.

I expect this issue is actually a bug in pam_ldap or the LDAP libraries, which may not be thread-safe, but I'm submitting it here because this is the only location I see the problem manifesting itself.

Backtrace printed (from apache error.log):

*** glibc detected *** /usr/sbin/apache2: double free or corruption (fasttop): 0x00007f2f8800d050 ***
