Package: apache2-common
Severity: important

In /etc/init.d/apache2, when a reload is requested (as is the case from
the package manager during upgrades )  ALL files in /etc/apache2  are
greped for a line begining with "^PidFile".  If there was some file with
a name like config.old that had a line that began with PidFile, it would
be used.

More importantly, some servers have lots of BIG log file in
/etc/apache2/logs, left over from an earlier standard, and all of those
log files are searched entirely for lines begining with PidFile.

This takes A VERY LONG TIME, and caused great anxiety to the poor
sysadmin running a live server and waiting to breath again when the
server has successfully restarted.
