Apache has a directive called Timeout that currently defines the amount
of time Apache will wait for three things:
1 The total amount of time it takes to receive a GET request.
2 The amount of time between receipt of TCP packets on a POST or PUT
3 The amount of time between ACKs on transmissions of TCP packets in

If your cgi execution doesn't fall in one of these things it remains
executing , indeed can execute until apache is stopped.
