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.

Thanks
