Consider installing the "Live HTTP headers" extension; it will help you
debug the problem.  http://livehttpheaders.mozdev.org/

Depending on the process model in which you're running Apache, consider
running the server without forking (single-process, single-thread) to see if
you can reproduce the problem.  

The following configuration values assume the MPM model is in use:

StartServers 1
MinSpareServers 0
MaxSpareServers 0
MaxClients 1
