 Are you sure your client didn't just have all the connections open and was
 keeping them open?  It sounds to me like it just kept opening connections
 until it reached the configured maximum, then couldn't open any more.  I
 don't see any reason to think anything is wrong with Apache in that case.

 Yes, there is supposed to be more than one process.  There is supposed to
 be a parent and a child.  Do you have any extra modules (eg. jserv)
 compiled in?  Certain modules will start an extra child.
