This might be a long-standing bug in apache2 that SOMEONE thinks
it was a good idea to make restart==reload instead of, like in
virtually ALL OTHER initscripts, restart==stop+start.

I’ve always only be doing /etc/init.d/apache2 stop; … start, and
it WFM.

Debian package maintainer scripts have no business using apache2ctl
directly, they should use the initscripts or the invoke-rc.d tool.
