Apache on Windows, connection error

Connections start failing with the error:

The semaphore timeout period has expired. : winnt_accept: Asynchronous AcceptEx failed.

Add the following directives to httpd.conf:

EnableMMAP off
EnableSendfile off

Found at My Digital Life. The Apache documentation on Win32DisableAccesptEx elaborates some on the error and solution.
