[revServer] process timeout issue

I've been thinking about this and I just can't wrap my head around it:

How can a single non-persistent child process like a CGI or RevServer 
govern server-wide settings like aggregate multi-process memory and time 
limits?

Such limits are common on shared servers like on-rev.com and easy to set 
up in Apache configs, but I can't figure out how an ephemeral process 
like RevServer could affect it, esp. given the suggestion that these 
limits are somehow imposed across multiple instances.

To distinguish whether the source of this issue is simply normal 
settings on on-rev.com or the RevServer engine itself, one would need 
need to test on a dedicated server outside of the on-rev.com hosting setup.

What else was installed on the dedicated private server on which this 
behavior was observed, and what would I need to install to see the same 
behavior on my server PC here?
