Which is why I suggested using "apachectl graceful" as if I read the
documentation correctly, the main Apache process will wait for the child
to exit properly. By default if ShutdownGracefulTimeout is not set or 0,
it will wait indefinitely and thus wouldn't kill it. This would allow
you time to attach gdb.

This is of course assuming that that is how it does in fact work. :-)
