Okay, here's a couple of things for you to check on to help me track down
what's going on (I'm cc'ing dev@httpd in case anybody else has guesses).

 1) Is your server compiled with -D SINGLE_LISTEN_UNSERIALIZED_ACCEPT?
 2) Which MPM are you using?

    You can find out the answers to both of these by running ./httpd -V
    from /usr/local/apache2/bin or wherever your httpd binary is
    installed.  For example:

    root@deepthought:/root/apache/test/bin# ./httpd -V
    Server version: Apache/2.1.0-dev
    Server built:   Aug 12 2003 16:43:24
    Server's Module Magic Number: 20030213:1
    Architecture:   32-bit
    Server compiled with....
     -D APACHE_MPM_DIR="server/mpm/worker"
     -D APR_HAVE_IPV6 (IPv4-mapped addresses enabled)
     -D HTTPD_ROOT="/root/apache/test"
     -D SUEXEC_BIN="/root/apache/test/bin/suexec"
     -D DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD="logs/apache_runtime_status"
     -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log"
     -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="conf/mime.types"
     -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="conf/httpd.conf"
