Thanks for the reply, but I already checked all that. No, I don't use
persistant connections. I do use a lot of DB-connections, but after this
"incident" the server won't serve php-sites anymore and therefor there
are no connections on the DB (I checked that on the DB-Server).
I'm still not sure what causes this Perl-Error in the error_log
I log via a custom logger-script (more or less a perl-oneliner) and some
of the lines are send to another host.
I used exactly the same configuration/script with Debian before, but
Debian uses sysklogd and I switched to syslog-ng during my
Could this be a problem? I'm just guessing here, since I'm totally
helpless right now.

Concerning the other apache settings:
Timeout 180
KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
KeepAliveTimeout 15
MinSpareServers 5
MaxSpareServers 15
StartServers 10
MaxClients 200
MaxRequestsPerChild 500

Anything wrong with this settings? I'm quite sure that I copied them one
by one from the Debian config.
