It appears as though the dynamic loader is crashing when I try to load a
custom apache module.  I recompiled apache with debugging on and here's the

The module is also linked staticly against libmysqlclient, and dynamicly
against libpthread, libz & libm.  Unfortunately, the module is proprietary
so I can't really give any more details that this.  The same module worked
fine on RH6.0 using apache 1.3.9 & I just tested that 1.3.11 & 1.3.12 work
under RH6.0 as well.

Is this bug still relevant in Red Hat Linux 7.3 or 8.0? There have been massive
changes in glibc since or the manufacturer of the closed source module might
have seen the light and opensourced it or put in a fix to cover this,.

Closing out due to bit-rot.
