Description of problem:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=466663
http://trac.lighttpd.net/trac/ticket/1562

See those references. I am not sure whether they are the same issue (one seems
to be solaris dependent and produces different result), but the debian crash
definitely is of our interest.

If they are the same it can be triggered by opening a lot of connections to the
web server.
