httpd vs. avahi and SELinux in Fedora 11



After doing a clean install of Fedora 11, the Apache webserver, httpd 2.2.11, is failing.  The error log [see below] shows that all the httpd children are killing themselves with Segmentation faults.

Httpd was working fine in Fedora 10, same laptop and I started with a fresh install of Apache's httpd using the RPM provided for Fedora 11.  At first I thought that maybe it is an SELinux problem.  Then I noticed in the error_log the following line:

    [error] avahi_entry_group_add_service_strlst("tardis") failed: Local name collision

The FQHN of my laptop where I am trying to run httpd is tardis.home.lebruns.com

Question 1:  Is the segmentation faults due to an SELinux policy issue?  I checked the files that should be displayed and their security context looks correct.  Is there a problem displayed in the first error log line where it states:

  SELinux policy enabled; httpd running as context unconfined_u:system_r:httpd_t:s0

Question 2:  Any ideas of what is causing the avahi error message?  What causes a "Local name collision"?  None of the configuration files specify the host name that httpd is running on.  [Setting ServiceName did not change anything.]

The exit signal Segmentation fault (11) repeats ad nausium until httpd is stopped.

Any help and/or suggestions will be appreciated.
