Not much of a point trying to debug problems in a server that is out
of date.  Try a more recent version.

Then pull out some debugging tools.  You can start with mod_status'
server-status handler, which can tell you what request the stuck
processes are serving.  Then you can try a debugger or a syscall trace
tool to attach to the processes and see what they are up to.
