I'm in agreement here, Apache should not give two shits what your
external IP address is if it's behind a NAT gateway and is bound to an
interface with a non-changing address. In fact it has no possible way
of knowing what the publicly-visible address is.
If Apache is dying after a certain time then that's obviously a problem,
and I'd suggest checking the error logs and even increasing the
loglevel, but the changing IP address shouldn't have anything to do with
it. I have found cases myself where Apache stops responding, but I've
not been able to figure it out so I do have some interest in this
