Having investigated further, I now think this is not an apache bug, but rather
a bug with Solaris which I happened to trigger at the same time as migrating to
2.2.9. For the benefit of anyone else who should run into it, here are the

Solaris bug 6670527 ( ) says:

Simultaneous connect() issued from multiple shared stack zones fails with


This is caused by the fact that the zones have a shared stack. This means that
we have a single connection hash
for the single stack. If we are using INADDR_LOOPBACK( in all address
specifications and the server in
question is on a static port, the only unique member of the tuple is the local
port. This can be duplicated
in ephemeral port selection or can be explicitly bound to be the same, hence
the failure.

Applying the suggested workaround (proxying to the zone's local IP address
rather than appears to fix the problem for me. There is also a
kernel patch available.
