Right -- it should be near the end of the enhancement list.
I guess it needs a number -- will do.

Huh? Say it ain't so. :(

The only way I can think this could cause a core dump is if some
other enhancement has been added that writes to the access_log --
the changes in the patch are pure, portable Unix (I checked them with
my copy of Stevens' Advanced Programming ...) and they've been running
great on my server.

I checked the patch (and renamed the file to patch.B6.log_no_stdio).
Do we really want to use this as a naming convention? Blecho.
I would prefer "B006-log_no_stdio.txt"
