    Since installing 3.4RC, I see the following in my logs:

    212.38.177.40 - - [29/May/2012:09:14:29 -0500] "POST /wp-cron.php?doing_wp_cron=1338300869.644915103912353515xxx0 HTTP/1.0" 500 313 "-" "WordPress/3.4-RC1; http://mywordpress.sterndata.com" 30

    The IP address is my own server, so it appears WordPress is calling the cron routines itself. Why is it getting a 500 error?

    3.4 moves from using time() to microtime() for the doing_wp_cron lock. This increases the size of the URL but should not exceed limits. Alas, I’m not sure what’s going on here.

    They don’t all fail:

    Any errors in error_log (e.g. “Out of memory”)?

    Nope, there’s no error_log file in wp-admin

    It might be in another directory. Generally, when Internal Server Error is issued, a distinct error message can be found in the error logs.

    Nope,no error_log. I do, however, log all PHP errors and found this

    It seems that there’s a problem with W3 Total Cache 0.9.2.4 and WP 3.4

    I’m running w3tc and 3.4 without that error anywhere.

    I just upgraded to the latest nightly and will monitor my logs (httpd and php errors).

    With WP 3.4.1:

    Looking at my current access_log file,
