in the meantime I have upgraded to 2.2.8, but I still sometimes see 
processes like this:

  2069 nobody    15   0    1   0:46.23 87.6 2460m 1.7g 1564 D httpd

httpd is consuming 87% of the ram. Why does he do that? How can I trace 
what the process is doing? I guess it is useless to post bug report 
without additional information.

I'm using a self-programmed module for dynamic mapping from hostnames to 
document-roots from a berkeley db. But it is read only. The same 
configuration is running on different servers, but only one with a high 
load seems to cause this problem.
