APR had an issue with feature detection on FreeBSD 10 that led to "outage"
symptoms, though I don't recall precisely how similar the symptoms were.
 Do you know if NetBSD 5.2 has the accept4 syscall?  (doubtful)  That issue
for FreeBSD was fixed in apr-1.5.1.

With those Listen directives, httpd should be immune from different
behavior on different interfaces, even in the presence of bugs related to
socket state, polling, etc.

You could attach to children with gdb at the time of the outage and get
backtraces so we can see if httpd is doing its best to handle new
connections.  If you can figure out how to trigger the issue, you could do
so while running strace/truss/(similar tool) against the httpd child
processes, which is trivial if you're using a threaded MPM and configure it
to only have a single child.

Other than that, I dunno.
