apache2 logs ([notice] child pid nnnn exit signal Segmentation fault (11))

While on vacation, one of our servers more or less died when /var filled
up. This was a result of the error.log file for apache2 filling up with the
following messages.

[Sun Aug 22 06:25:32 2004] [notice] child pid 3881 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
[Sun Aug 22 06:25:32 2004] [notice] child pid 3880 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)
[Sun Aug 22 06:25:33 2004] [notice] child pid 3894 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

I fixed it over the phone, but when I returned I found that two other
computers had the same huge log files. Fortunately they had larger /var
partitions, so it didn't cause any real problems. All of the computers in
question are runnin Debian/Sarge. Can anyone suggest a reason for this?

 What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, 
 and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is brought 
 under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of 
 liberty and democracy?
