Running version 1.3.7 on Linux Fedora 2, with Apache 2.0.50, PHP version 4.3.8,
running MySQL-max v 4.0.20
Quite frequently Apache chews up all the CPU when Apache serves anything over 10
requests at once, bringing the CPU load up to 99%.

I've installed Turck MMCache to help reduce the load and turned on MediaWiki's file
caching, neither have been able to fix the problem. I read WikiTravel had similar
problems to this with MediaWiki 1.3.x, is there any documentatin on how to fix this?
Give 1.4beta2 a try; in most cases it should render faster than 1.3, and I've
added some additional optimization for file cache hits.
Please test again with the lastest stable version (1.4)
eventually try out 1.5 which comes with a new database
Yep, when we moved to 1.4 things improved nicely. I should have updated the bug
