Don't think so... That machine was a mail server for our newsletters (1/2
mil deliveries a day), running qmail, and the concurrency-remote was 1024,
and I never had a problem...

Also, what's wicked is that it only happens when the thing is compiled at 64
bits... At 32 it crawls, but it's still up, and the configuration is the
same. If it was a problem of slots, it would fail in the same way both at 32
or 64...

Plus, in theory, if Apache is unable is not able to create a child (process
or thread), doesn't it report it? It shouldn't segfault for that, right?

Just out of curiosity (I want to doublecheck) how do I increase it on
Solaris 8?
