apachectl graceful fails

Seems some or other code change in apache has caused it to fail to 
restart gracefully when log rotating...  (it used to work fine but 
for the past 2 or 3 months has failed during the logrotate)

error.log shows
[Mon Sep 01 08:00:03 2008] [notice] Graceful restart requested, doing 
[Mon Sep 01 08:00:04 2008] [notice] seg fault or similar nasty error 
detected in the parent process

and it never restarts.   A manual 'apachectl start' gets it going 
just fine, and a manual 'stop ... start' also is just fine, so it 
seems to be an issue in the 'graceful' code.
