Description Phil Endecott 2007-09-12 14:40:27 UTC
It doesn't seem unreasonable to set smax=0 in a proxy configuration, i.e. when
idle all connections should be dropped.  But, as currently implemented, zero is
used internally as a sentinel value to indicate that no user value has been
supplied.  So attempts to set smax=0 result in it getting its default value.

I have hacked together a small patch that changes this sentinel to -1, so that
zero can mean zero.  I'll attach the patch, which is against 2.2.x, though I
fear that there are probably other places that need to be changed to match.

Patching trunk... Setting the sentinel value where it should go however :)
