Description of problem:
When restarting Apache 7.3 w/mod_frontpage, apache boots as normal but creates
an additional two semaphore arrays without clearing or deleting the old ones.
This poses a problem when apache is restarted thus 64 times, then reaching the
128 semaphore array "normal" limit. Compiling the apache source and
integrating php+mysql+mod_frontpage without using RedHat RPMs does not stack
up on semaphores.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH 7.3, Apache with PHP + MySQL.
2. Install mod_frontpage 1.6.2+
3. Restart Apache
Actual Results: An additional two semaphore arrays are created, leaving
redundant semaphores in memory.
Expected Results: Apache should by nature, delete unused semaphore arrays.
