Default 500 Servier Misconfiguration and Fast CGI

I have some processes that do a lot of calculation or configuration and can take a long time to run. The server grinds away to produce configuration information for various shopping carts. It can take several minutes (wall-clock time) to create a "catalog" to send (sometimes up to 10 minutes). It then takes this catalog and sends it to a shopping cart site usually hosted on the same server. The cart can also take several minutes of wall-clock time to process the data before responding with a result back to the server.

The server gets httpd busy timeout (or one of several different fast_cgi or httpd errors). Probably 3 out of 5 times. I have tried increasing the following values in httpd.conf for the virtual server. However they do not seem to have an affect. I'm a little afraid to increase these values system wide.
#IPCCommTimeout 600
IPCCommTimeout 10800
#Timeout 3000
Timeout 10800
#TB Added
IPCConnectTimeout 60
ProcessLifeTime 10800
IdleTimeout 10800
BusyTimeout 10800
MaxRequestsPerProcess 2048

The user sees a Server 500: Server Misconfiguration Error from Apache.

The virtual server error_log shows:
[Fri Apr 16 13:41:32 2010] [warn] (104)Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: read data from fastcgi server error.
[Fri Apr 16 13:41:32 2010] [warn] (104)Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: ap_pass_brigade failed in handle_request function

I would like to have the virtual server wait for up to (I used 10800 above just to see if there was a difference) 1200 seconds before it kills the fcgi process - or better yet, just wait.

The processes seem to get killed at between 6 & 7 minutes of wall-clock time. It is NOT failing due to php set_time_limit() expiration or php memory_limit.

Can anyone help me figure this out? I'm pretty much stumped at this point. Appreciate any help/inisight anyone can provide.
