 We do: see http://www.apache.org/docs/stopping.html which says:
 
 :You will notice many httpd executables running on your system, but you
 :should not send signals to any of them except the parent, whose pid is
 :in the PidFile. That is to say you shouldn't ever need to send signals
 :to any process except the parent.
 
 I suggest you file a bug with RedHat.
 
 Tony.
