Subject: WWW Form Bug Report: "Scoreboard show long-since dead 'W' children" on Irix

Submitter: bn@hway.net
Operating system: Irix, version: 5.3 & 6.2
Version of Apache Used: 1.1.1
Extra Modules used: 
URL exhibiting problem: 

Symptoms:
--
After the server has been run a while
(few hours / several 100,000 hits), the scoreboard
starts to show slots occupied by servers reported
to be in the "W"rite mode with a lot of
"SS".  The processes actually do not exist when
checked by the ps command.  After a few days of
run time (several million hits) the scoreboard
becomes filled with these non-existant "W"
processes.  Eventually, the server throttles
itself via the MaxClients and fails to accept any
more requests.  Any ideas?
