It's really difficult to get 100% efficiency for modern code - this is 
truly scalable

The server went offline and needed a reboot not because a userland 
application misbehaved, but there is a problem at the kernel level which 
isn't normally exposed.

Why not debug the httpd.conf and or post more meaningful details - Like 
a pastie of the config or some way for others to reproduce it?  I can't 
help directly, but I hope this helps get you on track to get help..
