what causes "socket error: accept failed" with Apache 0.8.11

Hi,

I am getting a lot of "socket error: accept failed" logs in the error log
of Apache 0.8.11. I can't tell where these connections come from, since no
IP address is given with it.
What causes this error?

thanks,

Simon

I've seen it happen for a number of reasons.

What OS are you using ?
Some need mutual exclusion around the "accept" (linux?, Solaris). Without it
you can get into a terrible state.
