That exactly matches what I am seeing (though I'm getting no response
from your port 81 server).  I am not using PHP -- just the standard modules
plus mod_info and mod_status.  In any case, these are plain file requests
handled using mmap (only 16 syscalls per request).

I tried testing it with four children and parent all running truss.
It seems to be starvation of the first child created, since it
consistently hits the fifth in-line image on a server with 

StartServers 4
MinSpareServers 2
MaxSpareServers 4

Unfortunately, it is difficult to truss a newly created process
before the hicup stops.  Hmmm, maybe the problem is in the new
exponential startup stuff

BTW, I am also getting only 8 requests/second on a test setup that
normally handles over 60/second.  This problem is not in 1.2.X
(I just tested that as well).
