It seems the problem is related to mod_ssl. After disabling ssl support in
httpd.conf the semaphores were freed upon stopping apache.
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-10-01 06:13:09 EDT
Previous comment not confirmed upon testing on a new machine. The problem 
persists upon disabling ssl.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-10-01 06:40:48 EDT
After disabling mod_php4 in httpd.conf on several different machines, the 
problem was solved. So, it would seem the problem is related to mod_php 4.
Comment 5 Need Real Name 2002-10-01 07:58:19 EDT
After recompiling php without the option --with-mm, the problem disappeared. I 
am using mm-1.1.3-8 and mm-development-1.1.3-8.
