comment Running Apache as a different user
It doesn't. Processes can only bind to ports under 1024 if it has super user privilege. So haproxy is either starting as root and dropping privileges (probably) or setuid root (unlikely).

comment In the linux top program, what does the z option indicate
A process that is blocked on I/O is in a state known as "uninteruptable sleep", which is not the same state as sleeping. In the context of this question, a process in iowait I don't think will show as running, but I'm not 100% sure.
