Default Apache error: Bad file descriptor: apr_socket_accept

Within my Apache2 error.log file, i see several error messages like:

[error] (9)Bad file descriptor: apr_socket_accept: (client socket)
[error] (9)Bad file descriptor: apr_socket_accept: (client socket)
[warn] long lost child came home! (pid 12345)
[notice] Graceful restart requested, doing restart
[error] (9)Bad file descriptor: apr_socket_accept: (client socket)
(9)Bad file descriptor: apr_socket_accept: (client socket)

The Bad file descriptor error message seems to appear everytime Apache restarts.
Does anyone what this error message means?

I had this problem in the past too and understand that it seams to be a bug in Apache2, but now i am not sure...

Debian Etch/Apache 2.2.3.

Can anyone tell me more about such an error end if possible how to ovoid it.

Thanks in advance!
