I was wrong yet again.

My first issue with Apache 1.3.28 on Solaris 8 is not auth_ldap related 
-- but it is not a patch level issue.  I can get it to hang quite easily 
with 'ab' with a 25K static HTML file and 50K requests with concurrency 
of 64.  I can still get Apache 1.3.28 to hang on Solaris 8 with lower 
concurrencies, but less easily.  I cannot get it to hang, however, if I 
increase MaxSpareServers from 10 (the default) to 15.

Once that was resolved, however, then I discovered that Apache 1.3.28 
(EAPI_MM) with auth_ldap 1.6.0 (with shared memory cache) will hang just 
like Apache 2.0.47 when the LDAP cache's entry count is exceeded, i.e. 
while trying to purge the cache.

I guess the solution is just to set the cache big enough for now...
