Thanks, I found this;

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/httpd-dev/200303.mbox/%3c3E84B1EC.3050007@Golux.Com%3e

And an ensuing discussion about the no-good-signal-free problem ;) 

Looking at it there, the patch seems like it would work, except I think
the way the listeners are kept open by the children needs some changing,
so that the listening ports can be unbound immediately (like sshd does
on shutdown, for a good example).
