Drupal shows blank pages, sometimes

Something I never experienced on my local setup suddenly happened on the production site: random white pages. Consistent in that it was always the same pages (e.g. admin/build/modules), but random because most content pages would show up fine and many admin pages as well.

Digging aroung showed an error in the Apache log:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of X bytes exhausted

I found the answer here: I added an appropriate ini_set line to settings.php and suddenly my admin/build/modules page showed up.
