The operating system is Linux. The separate threads are spawned as "apache"
(in our case) but there is still the root process running httpd - that
should have no problems killing of looping CGI processes, if it wanted to.

However, I'll accept that "It cannot be done" and continue monitoring for
looping apache processes.

If I get motivated I could probably write a cron task to inspect the
/server-status webpage every two minutes and to kill off any thread that
seems to be hogging the system.
