Well, the problem is that the requests are not always served.
During load testing, say about 10 concurrent requests I also load the map.
But there are randomly tiles that are never loaded. I thought this would be
related to the defunct processes, but that is not a certainty.
My setup is lighttpd + fastcgi.
To be honest I'm in a pretty bad situation now, considering we go live with
this in 9 days.
Not sure what else I can do honestly.
