It may be working as designed - this code path gets trigged when all the fds in the pollset get closed asynchronously; see PR 42829 and the thread concerning that bug on this list. If it is working as designed it is arguably more useful than the epoll behaviour in the same case; at least, it's more useful for httpd. AFAICT the only effect of this to prefork is to generate some error_log spam; could be ignored easily enough. The APR change r641661 certainly looks correct anyway. joe
