I agree that the problem must be in Apache: until a few days ago, our
main web server was running 2.0.0 (VERY stable - never a problem with it,
uptimes of 90 days) with Apache 1.3.1 (haven't gotten around to update to
1.3.2 yet). Then I decided to give a go to 2.0.27, which ran smoothly on
my workstation (which is nearly the same hardware, with less memory and
smaller hard drive, but I don't run exactly the same programs - no Apache
for instance). Immediatly Apache began to run weird, it took forever to
get web pages even on the ethernet. I immediatly downgraded to 2.0.0, and
everything is now running smoothly.

Now, I'm going to upgrade kernel by kernel to see on which kernel it
brakes, and I'll follow up here.
