Okay, here are the problems that we identified yesterday. 
Unfortunately, we didn't have time to indicate to the list what our 
resolution is.  Hence, you guys are somewhat out of the loop and I 
think are going off in the wrong direction here.

1) testprocmutex isn't calling apr_proc_mutex_child_init
   (note that httpd does)
2) SysVSem's proc mutex isn't doing anything on child_init
3) In the SysVSem cleanup, semctl isn't properly identifying errors
4) All children are running the cleanups where only the parent should

What we said we should do is that the child_init call should remove 
the cleanup from the children (since it can do the cleanup_kill as 
the SysV cleanup is a static call within proc_mutex.c).  The proc 
mutex cleanups should only be done by the parent not each child.

I believe Aaron's initial intent of his reply to Philip was that he 
couldn't reproduce it, but that he (and the rest of the Las Vegas 
gang) did know exactly what to do to fix this correctly.  -- justin
