That's easy enough to do. Thanks for the tip. I'll keep an eye on the 
server for awhile to make sure this fixes it.

PostgreSQL's limit was initially set to 100. I set it to 256, which is 
what Apache's MaxClients was set to. I seriously doubt we had 100 
simultaneous users on the system before, but maybe Apache holds onto 
connections longer than it needs to and hit the limit that way.
