Ok, here's some information that might be meaningful to the problem I'm having.

The data that is being fed into this output filter is coming from mod_proxy.

I've looked at the mod_proxy source and I see that it does some stuff
directly with output filters and headers, but couldn't yet find what
would cause it to have different behaviour depending on the response

It is certainly the case that when the output filter is called, if the
response size is small, bytes_sent is zero, and if the response size
is bigger, bytes_sent is 418 which looks like the size of the headers.

Maybe there's some other condition that's triggering the premature
sending of the headers which I couldn't find yet.
