The Apache error log would be a good start, as it looks to me like
your Apache child processes are crashing. You may find errors about
segmentation violations or similar in the logs. If you do, check that
the version of mod_python you are using is the correct one for the
version of Python and Apache you are using. Having multiple versions
of Python installed can also cause issues.

BTW, are you using precompiled packages or compiling everything from
source code? What operating system are you using?
