We're getting it during what we believe is normal operation, but not all the
time. I haven't been able to find any certain conditions that give us the
segfault. The nice thing though is that nginx recovers in a good way, but
it's hard to transfer bigger files from the backend webservers running behind
Some times when can run for a couple of minutes without segfaults, but then get
segfaults perhaps once a minute or more often.
I've managed to wrangle up a gdb, and the error is happening as per my earlier
The problem seems to be that ngx_cycle->files seems to contain null-pointers,   
and that the check for c->fd == -1 is not preceeded with a check for c == 0.
Please tell me if you need more info.
