well - you don't need an iphone to debug. That's just what I was doing.

some more details below.

re sending a patch - sadly I don't have the skills to do that.

I wasn't intending to cause offence by talking about these bugs - but they  
do seem relevant to the http vs luahttp discussion.

My point is just that I don't think the luahttp interface is ready to  
replace the oldhttp interface on mac & linux.

meanwhile, if you did have time/inclination to debug

I'm talking about commands like:

or just use the attached html to send commands to localhost.

it seems that sending the same command repeatedly is more stable - but  
still crashes soon enough.

I have sent a handful of crash reports. I'm not sure where they end up,  
but if the system is searchable, you'll find them by looking for my email  
address in the description with luahttp.
