i have also seen this with uploading files bigger than what apache is
allowed to have. I have MemManager (it proxies mallocs) and it lets
apache have 32 megs of memory.
I have seen this with the mySQL connectivity in PHP - but its usually
caused by NOT closing the connection to the MySQL server after you're done.

Remember, be a gentleman and close all your MySQL connections when
you're done!
