Subject: WWW Form Bug Report: "Idle processes hanging" on Irix

Operating system: Irix, version: 6.2
Version of Apache Used: 1.1.1
Extra Modules used: -
URL exhibiting problem:

Our Apache 1.1.1 on Irix 6.2 leaves a plenty
of idle processes hanging on. It doesn't care
about the MaxSpareServers directive and does
not kill extra processes. All these processes
have the same PID and that is the PID of the
mother process of the server itself. On the 
status-page these look like:

12   25630  0/0/126    .   19.40   721  0.0   0.00   0.31

So the SS-field just gets bigger, but the Acc-
field is always zero.

There is some more data at:
Check especially the servers #12-28 in the
status-table displayed on that page. Sometimes
there are dozens of this kind of processes even
though MaxSpareServers is set much lower. But
if these idle connections reach the MaxClients
limit, the server seems to refuse connections.

Funny thing is that using ps-command I don't
see as many httpd-processes than through 
/status-directive. Does the status-directive
show too many processes?
