cron + apache problem - I think

I have a server that runs apache1.3.  Every sunday morning at 06:30 it 
stops.  /var/log/apache/error.log says 
   [Sun Oct  3 06:30:59 2004] [notice] SIGUSR1 received.  Doing \
   graceful restart
but it gracelessly doesn't.

/etc/crontab has
    47 6    * * 7   root    test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts\
    --report /etc/cron.weekly
which I thought meant do it at 06:47, but I obviously misunderstood as I 
see the rotated logs are timed earlier usually. For example, messages has 
the last four rotations timestamped 06:31, 06:29, 06:46, 06:44.  

I don't see any reference in /etc/cron* to restarting apache, so I am 
wondering what is stopping it so reliably, and what I should do to ensure 
it does restart if it must stop.
