Semaphores getting created, thus blocking start of Webserver ctl

I am using Solaris 9 system and IBM HTTP Server 6 for my webserver. Semaphores with webadmin and root privileges are getting created more often and blocking the start of webserver ctl instances. I use 'ipcs -s' to list them and 'ipcrm -s' to kill them one by one.

But even after killing, a new batch of them reappear again. Plz help !!

roundup-ctl - roundup server control interface SYNOPSIS
roundup-ctl [options] command DESCRIPTION
roundup-ctl is a front end to the roundup server. It is designed to help the administrator control the functioning of the roundup server daemon. This script mimics most of the behaviour of a regular init script, but works as a front end to the runit package to control the roundup service. So, in order to use this, you need the runit package, too. Please note that using this script is mostly incompatible with having roundup controlled by runit directly in the form of automatic startup. The roundup-ctl script returns a 0 exit value on success, and >0 if an error occurs. For more details, view the comments in the script. OPTIONS
-d directory Use given directory as service directory. COMMANDS
The command can be any one or more of the following options: start If the roundup server is not runinng, start it. If the server stops, restart it. stop Stops the roundup server. status Print sta- tus of the roundup server. SEE ALSO
