I just tried a graceful on 2.2.6 on Solaris 10 and no problems.. So I don't think there's
anything globally wrong.

What was the reason for the graceful? Presumably you had made some config change that you
want to go live - if so, there are some changes that aren't handled by graceful, eg: new SSL
certtificate, new paths to logfiles etc.
