When logrotate rotates apaches logs, apache crashes with lines like this
in the logs

[Mon Jun 12 09:08:56 2017] [notice] Graceful restart requested, doing
restart
[Mon Jun 12 09:08:56 2017] [error] (9)Bad file descriptor:
apr_socket_accept: (client socket)
[Mon Jun 12 09:08:57 2017] [notice] seg fault or similar nasty error
detected in the parent process


"seg fault or similar nasty error detected in the parent process"

I can 100% duplicate it by running "apache2ctl graceful"

As far as I can tell, I could replace
/etc/init.d/apache2 reload
with
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

in /etc/logrotate.d/apache2

It seems overly brutal to do that.

Any other suggestions, or are there a patch that I am not aware of?
