question about nginx, slowloris and fastcgi

i am new to Nginx and I am testing the latest stable Nginx as webserver
with slowloris.
When I test slowloris on my php enabled website I see Nginx running to
100% and get the following error:

500 Internal Server Error

I don't think Nginx crashes (although the 100% cpu concerns me) but I
think fastcgi/php is crashing.

Are other people using Nginx and fastcgi/php are also experiencing this
behaviour and is there a fix to ensure that my website is still running
when slowloris is checking?

Kind regards,
