wild ideas

any monitoring scripts which can take action at the first sign of the
problem might be more successful than interactive attempts at capturing ps,
running gcore against high CPU process, whatever

change your "Listen portnumber" directives to "Listen" to
avoid httpd seeing an IPv6 connection (especially one with no source address
or which it somehow mangles to look like that)

CPU rlimits on httpd perhaps?  (I don't think I've ever tried that)

Can you nice the httpd down?  (haven't tried that)

make sure MaxClients isn't way over the capacity of your machine
