Try strace'ing or attaching a debugger to the stock process to see what it
is doing.  Also, the server-status page (generated by mod_status) can be
used to tell you what the last request to that process was.

Some common things to look at:
- If you aren't using the prefork mpm, try that.
- Try changing the AcceptMutex directive.
- Try disabling php (obviously, that could be difficult on a live site)
