It doesn't die, but on my Production 2k3 server, it's littering about  
16 rotatelogs.exe and eight cmd.exe in the last hour. The littered  
processes are unconnected to each other and the shells point to a  
nonexistent httpd.exe... which doesn't seem to be crashing (no  
evidence of that in the error log or Application event log, and  
MaxRequestsPerChild is 0).

I'm keeping an eye on it and periodically cleaning out the litter.

This is Steffen's (ApacheLounge) build of 2.2.3, built July 27 2006.  
Yesterday I played with our own (ASF) binary on my home box.
