As I suggested, CLOEXEC isn't independent.  It is the way *some* platforms
would prefer to implement inherit_[un]set.  Not all, such as TPF, but the vast
majority would have an easier time with it.

I'm guessing you do not mean wrong usage of the macro
APR_IMPLEMENT_(UN)INHERIT_SET, but rather inaccurate calls
(missing when useful or present when invalid).

In either case your citations would be helpful to the dev@httpd list
so they can start fixing those bugs.
