Web server halted for 20 minutes

Halted the web server this morning for about 20 minutes after hearing that
it was slow in responding, as well as seeing maxed-out CPU and a large load
(in the 90's for 1-minute average load, or processes waiting to be
finished, as well as high in the 5-minute and 10-minute averages -- in
comparison the load now is back down around 2-4 average and normal CPU
usage).  These processes were hung spawns of apache, the web server, that
had not exited during a few server restarts during the morning; had to kill
off the hung processes to restart the web server cleanly without rebooting.
