Most likely explination is a misbehaving script/module.  Are you using
mod_perl, PHP, or similar?

You'll need to try to get some idea of what is going on by looking at
the logs (perhaps adding the process id to your log format so you can
corolate with your process listing), the mod_status server-status
page, and perhaps a debugger to attach to the giant processes.
