Wait a second, our user configured the server so that the child process
never terminates.  That's what our docs say that directive does.  This
says, well, we just take a really long time to terminate.  Either the
patch needs to be backed out, or the docs need to change.  I personally
would rather keep the 0 meaning the child process never dies.
