If you have a perl script as such:

# Do something bad
require 'doesnt-exist';

Then reference this perl script in a customlog line:  Eg.

CustomLog "| /usr/bin/myperl.pl" "%h"

Apache normally starts ONE copy of the perl script.  However because this perl
script bombs out, it keeps trying to restart the perl script (everytime it tries
to log a hit as defined in the CustomLog).  Eventually we had the maximum number
of apache processes running and apache stopped responding to any requests.
