  fastcgi.server = ( ".php" =>
      (( "socket" => "/tmp/php-fastcgi.socket",
          "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/php-cgi",
          "max-procs" => 10,
          "bin-environment" => (
              "PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN" => "16",
              "PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS" => "1000" 
          "broken-scriptfilename" => "enable" 

It works fine for me.

It's also recommended that you set PHP_FCGI_MAX_REQUESTS to 500 or so in the very next part of the FAQ. – sybreon Feb 24 '10 at 16:15
