hmmm, interesting. Since we are using Amazon's Elastic LB to load balance these 
app. servers running of EC2 instances and we do not have any direct access to 
the ELB logs or systems, pining this problem on the ELB might be difficult 
(although AFIAK, the ELB setup also uses apache -- I could be mistaken though).

If it isn't too much effort could you please point me to the apache bug you 
mentioned ?
