Running MySQLdb 1.2.3c1 with Python 2.6.2 under apache 1.3, mod_wsgi 2.3, pylons 0.9.7, SQLAlchemy 0.5.3.
Apache is custom built, RHEL4.
Linux version 2.6.9-42.ELsmp (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-2)) #1 SMP Wed Jul 12 23:27:17 EDT 2006
Getting occasional segfaults under Apache. The parent process will restart the dead process, which will last for a while and then die again. The segfaults seem to be correlated with higher load on the server, but that could just be due to the larger number of requests per second during those periods (it seems to scale faster than linear, however).

I cannot make the core dump generally available, but would be happy to run any additional commands against the image. Unfortunately, we've been unable to reproduce the problem on our staging / testing servers, so we've only been able to see this by putting 1.2.3c1 into production. We've since rolled production back to 1.2.2 and are just having to deal with the utf-8 related memory leaks, so it's unlikely we'll have much besides this core dump to work with.
