I know this is an old thread, but this is exactly
the same problem I'm seeing with all Wordpress sites hosted on GoDaddy.com. I haven't found a single other mention of this problem on the web. Did you ever find a resolution?
URLs in posts will eventually cause Apache or FastCGI to crash when saving the post. The more URL's in the post, the most likely a crash, but it appears to only happen with URL's of certain formats. For example, I've verified URL's with port numbers like :80 will always make it crash after only a few saves. Also, very long URL's over about 200 characters will also crash it quickly. This even happens with a fresh, clean Wordpress installation. Posts with no http:// in them never crash it.
GoDaddy is also using FastCGI and there's no way to disable it. The behavior of the crash makes me think something is going wrong on POST and that the URLs are being parsed or sanitized or something that's causing the apache processes to choke. I've done these tests on two other servers not on GoDaddy and they never crash.
I get these error very frequently in the logs:

I've tried increasing memory, and setting fcgi variables in php5.ini have no effect.
