I got a pbm like this (but not really...) on three debian boxes (woody) with apache-ssl.
it seems to appear after a bad reload during logrotate.
one time in january on a deb box
one time in july and one other on september on another deb box
one time in october on another deb box
thoses are the only ones and I have a lot of apache-ssl/woody servers
working (maybe 50)
each time I've got the folowing entries in apache logs at logrotate time:
accept_mutex_on: Identifier removed
[alert] Child 4968 returned a Fatal error...
Apache is exiting!
then some hours later (~ 5) apache crashes!!!
My only fix at this time is done by changing reload in logrotate by a
clean stop, sleep, start ... not a good fix, but it's enough and working
Unfortunatly, I can't debug more as I can't reproduce this and it
doesn't appear very often...
