If your Apache doesn't have any non-stock modules installed, I would 
look for a hardware fault first. Start with memtest86+. If you *do* have 
non-stock modules installed - look at them. I've run Apache for more 
than a decade and seg faults are very rare unless you have flaky 
hardware or are using unsupported modules.
