Bug#803190: apache2: systectl status apache2.service reports startup failed, even though apache2 is running

Package: apache2
Version: 2.4.10-10+deb8u3
Severity: normal

After upgrading to jessie the apache2 init script reports failure (via
systemctl) even though it actually starts up correctly.

adam@gaba:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 start
Starting apache2 (via systemctl): apache2.serviceJob for apache2.service failed. See 'systemctl status apache2.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

Hoever, it does actually startup correctly:

adam@gaba:~$ ps aux | grep /usr/sbin/apache2
root      7192  0.0  4.2  98744 21472 ?        Ss   12:45   0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

www-data  7198  0.0  2.0 100224 10196 ?        S    12:45   0:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

`systemctl status` does not imply what the problem is:

adam@gaba:~$ systemctl status apache2.service
● apache2.service - LSB: Apache2 web server

        Process: 7178 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/apache2 start (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Neither does `journalctl`:
