Moreso - as a file: (fcntl: or flock:) Apache creates the file, then
removes the file entry.  At this point - it remains as a file descriptor
but invisible to you.  You need to use a netstat like utility which lets
you explore open fd's to see them.  Don't panic if you don't see it, as
long as the SSLMutex directive didn't throw errors into your error.log,
you should be fine.
