Hmm.. that reminds me, we still need to do that memory test with the new
libc 5.3.12.  It is making life very hard for me, and I have not been 
able to track it down. 

It leaks... badly.
kill -HUP kills the main server, all other childern become zombie and stay
Proxy module causes the entire thing to SIGBUS. 
Repeated (~100) requests of the same page will cause the child to go zombie
	and stops answering calls, another child is lauched in it's place
	but the original never goes away.

This is compiled under Linux 2.0.7, libc 5.3.12, with -g3 and every module
in the std disterbution. (excluding dld, and mod_db)
