nginx 1.0.4 crashes

July 14, 2011 12:07PM
Hi, I'm experiencing some random crashes. My server is Ubuntu 10.04, with glibc 2.11.1-0ubuntu7.8. Here is an excerpt from the log file:

*** glibc detected *** nginx: worker process: double free or corruption (!prev): 0x00000000009f9ad0 ***
======= Backtrace: =========

After loading dumped core with gdb & doing "bt" I get this:

The biggest problem is that the server process is still alive, but it no longer handles connections.
It's necessary to restart it manually to make it work again. I thought nginx had master/worker
architecture to prevent such cases - a worker would die, but the rest should remain safe.

Anyway - is there any way to fix it? What can cause it?
