We've had things freeze in the past but they are very rare and could
be caused by any number of things outside of Apache's control, but
since switching to b5-dev the server has died twice (Saturday and today).

The machine is low use (~40,000 hits/day) with lots of timeouts from
distant clients. We SIGHUP once a week.

We now have a cron script to look for an outage and SIGHUP automatically.

My guess is that if the SO_LINGER patch is newer than a couple of weeks
then it could be a factor. If it's much older than that then I doubt it.
