Which might be part of the problem.  After only handling 1000 requests,
a child process will /start/ to exit - but it can't really go away until
all its current requests have completed.  So if this is happening too
often, you can end up with a lot of "extra" child processes waiting for
requests to complete, and tying up memory.
