mod_status reporting number of processes exceeding MaxClients


If anyone knows the answer to this, PLEEEEASE let me know (servers are under very heavy load).

I currently have the following httpd configuraton for worker:

Code:
ServerLimit          4
ThreadLimit         15
StartServers         2
MaxClients          60
MinSpareThreads     15
MaxSpareThreads     60
ThreadsPerChild     15
MaxRequestsPerChild  0
This should, in theory, only allow a maximum of 60 simultaneous connections (ServerLimit times MaxThreads, or MaxClients). However, when looking at my server-status a few minutes ago, I saw

Code:
165 requests currently being processed, 12 idle workers
This is so far out of the range, I can't believe it. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here? It appears that I'm doing the right thing by the documentation. I did also make sure that I stopped and started Apache after setting ServerLimit.

I'd be so grateful if someone could shed some light on this.

Thanks,
TWR

p.s. I'm adding more memory tomorrow when it arrives. I just need to handle this issue today before it arrives. Thanks.
