You mentioned that daedalus doesn't use any AcceptMutex.  I tried to
find your config files, but couldn't find any reference to

locking mechanism?  (I'm guessing you use modified code to bypass

Based on looking at daedalus over the weekend, I saw the run-queue
spike up to 50 - this should have been with 2.0.28, so I think this
load spike problem happens with that version as well.  

Another thing to try would be to update icarus's httpd to 2.0.28
or HEAD and see how it fares.  It should handle all of the ViewCVS
