Wow-- first off, thanks for the instantaneous response.
(wish I get a similar response from the folks responsible
     for solaris:-)
The reason I reported this as an Apache bug:

1)   When the novell servers dont respond via NFS --and the
     connecting WWW client goes away,
Solaris/Apache continues to wait for the NFS system to
     respond --this is possibly buggy behavior on Solaris'

On the apache side, the problem is that the httpd processes
that get stuck in this way dont die 
and continue to consume resources.

The combination of the above is to bring solaris to its
knees *very very* quickly.
