We've been dealing with a related problem which happens exactly
every 7 days when newsyslog sends SIGUSR1 to httpd (newsyslog runs
every 24 hours and does this -- but every 7 days, sig10 happens).
This only seems to happen with SSL enabled, however.  Box is 4-STABLE
though, not 6-RC.

That said -- since you have a coredump, can you provide a backtrace?

gdb /usr/local/sbin/httpd /location/of/core/file
