no command seems to be able to properly list the \\.\pipe\ directory, but:

D:\>ls \\.\pipe\* 2>&1 | findstr Win32
ls: \\.\pipe\Win32Pipes.0000024c.00000001: No such file or directory
ls: \\.\pipe\Win32Pipes.00000620.00000005: No such file or directory

The second pipe was created, guess what? to run this command. The first one:

D:\>oh Win32Pipes.0000024c
0000024C Apache.exe     File           007c \Win32Pipes.0000024c.00000001
0000024C Apache.exe     File           0080 \Win32Pipes.0000024c.00000001

and it's the pipe the Apache Win32 service uses to send commands to the 
daemon (a separate process). And in Apache's intentions it's an anonymous pipe:

D:\programmi\rete\server\Apache>link -dump -imports ApacheCore.dll | 
findstr -i pipe
                    46 CreatePipe
                   190 _pipe
