FIN_WAIT_2 seems to have taken down his BSDI box running 1.2b6

I've pointed him at the timeout patch for BSD systems.

Subject: Server bogs down, machine must be REBOOTED

Server bogs down, machine must be REBOOTED

After running a fairly heavily loaded http server (6 trx/sec) for
a while (a day or so) things with the http server get VERY slow
-- as if the server was VERY busy.  The server was configured for
keepalive.  System error messages start to appear on the console
complaining about buffer space and sockets.

Killing and restarting the server does not help.  When it starts
back up, things are still slow and bad.  I must then REBOOT THE
MACHINE to get things to work again.  

I have had to stop using this version of apache.

The server error logs show a bunch of these messages over time:

    [Tue Feb  4 00:01:39 1997] shutdown: Invalid argument
    [Tue Feb  4 00:01:39 1997] - lingering_close

The system error logs show:

    nrcpts=1, msgid=<>,

    Feb 4 01:47:47 hot mail.local: localhost: No buffer space

I am using server version Apache/1.2b6, and BSDI Unix 2.1.
