Thank you for the great bug report, thermoman.

My gut feeling here is that this problem is happening because "apache2ctl graceful" is restarting apache2 behind systemd's back. This is probably related to bug #1832182, although I haven't investigated it further.

Out of curiosity, what happens if you replace the "apache2ctl graceful" call with "systemctl restart apache2"?

I'm setting the bug as Triaged and tagging it as server-todo, which will put it in our queue where someone from the team will pick it up and work on it.

We will keep you posted.
