[php-maint] Bug#589386: libapache2-mod-php5 should probably restart instead of force-reload in postinst

Package: libapache2-mod-php5
Version: 5.3.2-1
Severity: normal

On a new install when apache2 is not yet installed, libapache2-mod-php5 will
pull in apache2. In this case it can happen that apache2 is not yet fully
started, causing it to ignore the graceful reload command issued by
libapache2-mod-php5's postinst.  This can lead to php not being active in the
running apache2.  A safer solution may be to restart instead of force-reload.
