I don't think PR 62277 is a regression/showstopper, the OP reports an
issue on slotmems after an upgrade from 2.2 to 2.4 (slotmems didn't
exist in 2.2, and the mod_proxy_lb quite changed in between).
Also, it looks more like an IPC-SysV "limitation" (on some Solaris
version?) than a bug in our code, maybe should we consider a move to
POSIX sems by default in trunk/
By the way, I modified the tool (attached in bz) to show what I
suspect are spurious collisions in ftok()+semget() with the OP's
balancers' names, but he switched to POSIX sems so I'm not sure he
will test any further. Possibly Rainer could try to run it on his
Solaris(es) to confirm or not (no specific version mentioned in
