Subject User, Logs, Restarts?

Httpd can wear's two hats, or UID, during it's life: the one it's invoked
via and; the one specified in the config files.

Configuration files are read, and their side effects taken, wearing
both these hats.

The user in force when pconf is cleaned up is can be different than
that when the space was allocated.

ap_open_logs is called wearing either hat.  That has interesting
consequences on the file protections and the processes this fires up.

Or am I confused?
