Try tunning maxusers in your kernel configuration file maxproc = 20 + 16 * maxusers
Thanks for this. Since posting my first message, I have been investigating the problem further.
The server on which this behaviour appears also has mod_php installed. Running the same script using mod_php does not replicate the problem. It only occurs with cgi/suexec. This makes me suspect it is not a problem of basic system settings. It also gives me an avenue for workarounds.
I notice that there was an issue with apache suexec failing to observe maxproc settings and that this was fixed fairly recently through a patch which has been included in the port.I wonder whether this patch might be at the root of the problem.
I think I need to try some tests on other builds and perhaps with Linux as a control to see whether I can replicate the same behaviour.
