I see the same problem with ncsa. There, the main server changes the owner id of 
all the pre-forked servers except the one that handles fcgi (at least, that is 
what I assume it does), and any processes that fcgi-bin scripts happens to 
pre-fork, or subsequently forks. Could be a big problem over a period of time.

The answer would be to modify the httpd server (I think).
