Running: freebsd 2.2.6 (kernel has maxusers=256) - trying to figure out the 
best environment to run apache under to avoid problems, but concerned that this
is an Apache problem.  This is the ben-ssl patch to 1.26 and runs well except..
My OS/environment vars seem to be up to par, BUT I'm getting errors trying to
execute cgi-bin apps from ApacheSSL if x users/requests hit the server simultaneously.
also getting: "fork: Resource temporarily unavailable".

The OS, FH limits and all that seem to be properly set - ulimit=unlimited, etc.
Maybe some superficial advice on the startup shell script?  But not sure if
this is the problem.  I know AP-SSL is a slightly different monster, but running
1.26 on the same machine with no problems - just the SSL version dies sometimes
when trying to run cgi - intermittently.  Please advise.  Been changing various Max/min
spare/client settings to no avail.
call cgi from AP-ssl with more network calls than matches the number of current
server processes - the number does not seem to expand.
Not sure - calling environment?  Bug in SSL patch?  Misconfiguration?  Trying
to find an answer....
