Stupid me. This happens when having developers crying in your ear all 
the time ;)

I enabled CoreDumpDirectory in httpd.conf, made a "ulimit -c unlimited" 
and started Apache. When I had a segfault there was no corefile in the 
specified directory and Apache was still running. Only the forked 
process was gone and a new was spawned. After two days or sometimes a 
week Apache gets really slow and can handle only a fourth or less of 
it's usual traffic.

Currently the page is not reachable.

I do my best.
