Thanks - I follow you now.

I've reproduced this behaviour on 2.2.14-5ubuntu8.11 (Lucid), 2.2.22-1ubuntu1.3 (Precise) and 2.2.22-6ubuntu5 (Saucy).

But I can't find any regression as you describe.

The init script does have access to the owner and group configured in /etc/apache2/envvars, so I think it may be a reasonable Wishlist item to have the init script automatically fix up /var/lock/apache2 for you. This is something that is best submitted as a Debian bug, and then if fixed there we can adopt the fix in Ubuntu on the next merge.

If this is a regression, then please provide an example of how to reproduce the problem not occurring in an older release.
