If this is what you are running, on BSD, then you are going
to have all sorts of problems. You should run:

	HouseKeeping 1
	MaxServers   0

to have any chance at all of the thing working.

The problem you are having with the ip_addr_counter is because
your ab program is creating so many new sessions that Interchange
is not allowing access. That is one of the robot defenses. If you
want to run the stress test, you are going to have to set
RobotLimit to 0 to disable it.
