Bug#423002: apache: The RLimitCPU directive doesn't act

Package: apache
Version: 1.3.34-4.1
Severity: normal

Using the RLimitCPU directive doesn't change anything in Apache behaviour : it doesn't limit execution time.
I used RLimitCPU 30 in the config of a virtual server in order to limit execution time to 30 seconds, but it didn't seem to work, so I added :  
php_admin_value max_execution_time 60 to the virtual server config then, running a very long php page I got :
> PHP Fatal error:  Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded 
It shows that the script ran until the php time limit, without considering at all the RLimitCPU directive.

Apache should respect the parameter of RLimitCPU directive
