In the upgrades file, there's this:
# sigh ... this really needs to be iso-8859-1 ... make it utf-8 if you want
# make sure you also put the right thing in your Apache confs for something
# AddType text/html;charset=iso-8859-1 .shtml
# -- pudge
REPLACE INTO vars (name, value, description) VALUES
('content_type_webpage','text/html; charset=iso-8859-1','The Content-Type
header for webpages');
Can someone explain the consequences/caveats of this? I'm not up on ISO's et
all so I'm honestly not sure what I should go with here.

Unless you serve content in a language that uses a different encoding
(i.e. charset) you are fine. ISO8859-1 covers the needs of all "Western
Europe" languages, namely English, French, Italian, German, Spanish,
You may need to adjust that if you're serving content in a Slavic
language, Turkish, Greek, Russian, etc. not to mention Asian languages.
But if you're a webmaster of such a site, you already know the issue and
that life is not so easy for you. :-)

I'm not even sure how to trace such a thing down, but I am about 80% sure
it's coming out of slashcode.
I'm running t_113 from a couple months ago, apache-1.3.27-2.7.2,
mod_perl-1.26-2, and mysql mysql-3.23.56-1.72.

I don't believe that Slash spawns any httpd processes. The background
slashd task can fire off a number of perl processes, but not httpd.
Apache will start and leave servers running to manage its workload. What
do you have in your httpd.conf file for the server pool management. My
server is not very busy at all, here are my settings.
So with the above, apache will initially start 3 httpd servers, try to
keep 3 spare servers running, no more than 7, and can have as many as 30
servers. When a server has processes 50 requests it will be killed and
