Apache will start and run correctly.  After a few minutes, one process will begin to take
up huge amounts of processor time and around 4 times the normal memory.  The system does run
a lot of CGI, but the memory/processor would all be handled by the cgi process, I assume.
 These processes also take a long time to die.
The only solution we have at this time is to run a script which checks to see if any httpd
processes are lasting longer then a minute.  The script then will restart apache if this occurrs.
