>Further bad news, CGI fails even with the change in apachectl .

Something that may have been lost in the recent discussion: Joe identified the
type of ulimit invocation which often needs to be adjusted to solve this type of
fork() failure.  You noticed an unrelated invocation of ulimit in apachectl
which adjusts the number of file descriptors on most Unix-ish systems.  That
original ulimit makes no attempt to address the issue you're seeing, on any system.

Suggestion:

Confirm that the CGI is actually exiting as expected when run from Apache 2.2.3
(i.e., you're not hitting the limit simply because CGI is not exiting as quickly
and you run out of allowable child processes).

Confirm that your Apache 2.2.3 build was configured in as similar a manner as
possible as your 2.0.x build where you don't see this issue.  (same choice of
mod_cgi vs. mod_cgid, same MPM, same MPM settings).

Find a BSD/OS support mailing list/newsgroup/whatever and see what has to be
adjusted to keep fork() from returning EAGAIN.

This definitely needs to move to a user support forum.
