Thank you Robert and some information for the rest. It turns out these
two prcoesses looking for /usr/sbin/httpd were zombies so to say (and
they were the cause of my problems). Someone used a php script
vulnarability and placed a script in /tmp. Apart from looking for
security holes in php scripts, I am going to monitor /tmp. I am
embarrased to say I haven't done that so far. I am writing it to warn
people like myself.

All the best,
