When waking up child processes during a graceful restart, the httpd parent process could attempt to open more connections than necessary if a large number of child processes had been active prior to the restart. Consequently, a graceful restart could take a long time to complete. With this update, httpd has been fixed to limit the number of connections opened during a graceful restart to the number of active children, and the described problem no longer occurs.
