Write as much info as you have to the servers log file => so you can fix 
the app.
Return a 500 server error; that's what they are there for.

For the rest I don't know FastCGI good enough. But it needs a way to 
tell the server that t need's to be reloaded => e.g under apache it is 
common that each apache process is reused a certain amount of times => 
If a bad crash has happened then this process needs to be replaced.

It's good that in apache it's threads (or at least last time I check3ed) 
and not threads => if it was threads, you needed to kill the whole 
server, with processes, you only replace one child process.
