We dont exactly know why connection remains open.
There could be a problematic client connected or buggy php script running on the server.

Whatever causes the problem that means if apache waits indefinitely, anybody could launch a DOS attack on server (via a crafted, never ending request).

Also in another view;
If this problem occurs, an inexperienced system administrator could not be solve that.

I think default configurations must be safe, secure, user friendly and tuneable.

If Ubuntu team thinks, thats the job of a system admin then i will respect that and close the report.
