Thanks Jeff for the answer but that WONTFIX does not apply here.  It is obvious
(for me at least) that changes done through the balancer-manager page won't be
kept between restarts.  That's totally understandable.

The thing here is that BalancerMember configuration gets mangled somehow when
you issue a graceful.  It sometimes swaps the route name or the loadfactor
changes to 0 when the configuration file says loadfactor=1.  The end result of
this is that all requests are now sent to one server only.

My workaround here is to always do a restart instead of a graceful but this is
not really a good idea when hundreds of vhosts are going through this reverse
proxy (the active requests will be lost abruptly).

Unfortunately no one using 2.2 here is able to confirm that 2.4 fixes the
problem.  That at least would be an incentive to take the leap.
