I'm maintaining 2 FCGI apps using CGI gateway. The FCGI app will terminate itself after being idle for 30 minutes. So far, everything is fine. Though I must admit that once in a while it just hung up but it very rarely happened. According to the app log, it only happen twice last year, which made me have to kill it manually. Well, I can live with that. :D Maybe it's because the suspected memory corruption as you said?

Could you point out which code exactly that lead to serious memory corruption? I could propose code review to Wanderlan if I can prove it.

Wanderlan is an open minded person. If you could prove the arguments, he will listen up to you. ;)
