I have reports from UnixWare 2.x users who say that SIGHUP is not resetting
Apache, and that accept()s are being refused from the time of the SIGHUP on.
As I said earlier, I don't have access to a copy of UnixWare 2.x to fix
any of this. This is the only other related problem I know of. I also have
reports of other problems with signals on UnixWare 2.x.
