[Seaside] Apache load balancing with sticky sessions

We are using Apache load balancing using sticky sessions with the help of a
cookie generated by the application.
Works fine, but ...

Assume that one of our 15 worker fails, the other 14 workers continue to
participate equally in the traffic. After we restart the failed worker, then
Apache gives all the load it can to it. It looks as if Apache wants this
worker to catch up. The problem is that this worker is absorbing all the new
sessions and we end up having nearly no traffic in the other 14 workers. I
know this looks like an Apache-only issue, I just want to see if anyone else
observed such behavior.
