A common cause of that with PHP is the FastCGI module sending requests
to PHP as it decides to exit on its ownt; unfortunately I don't see a
relevant directive for mod_fastcgi to have it stop sending requests
after a certain count; for mod_fcgid it is FcgidMaxRequestsPerProcess;
I guess you could make PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS unlimited or very large.
