Not a DDOS attack this time; not as such, anyway.
We've been getting flooded with trackback spam, 2500 per minute at peak periods. This seems to have been causing Apache to go nuts. Or seemed to be the cause, at least. I zapped all the trackback scripts last night after rebooting the server after the latest Apache episode, and went to bed.
And then Apache locked up again.
Long story short: We're moving to new servers. That will give me a chance to rebuild everything properly, which is rather hard on a busy production server that is the constant target of DDOS attacks, hacking attempts, spam floods, and every other noxious event known to the 'net.

To add insult to injury, the only browser that seems to work properly in this case is IE. That means my CSS is broken, of course.
Update: When starting with a "known good" version of something and attempting to develop a new system from there, it may prove worthwhile to verify that the "known good" version is, in fact, good. (Which it wasn't, though I'm not yet sure precisely where the problem lies. However, my cleanroom CSS doesn't exhibit the poopy behaviour of the borrowed CSS, so it's in there somewhere.)
