I ran into problems with 2.0.40 on Solaris 2.6 (sparc) serving .pdf's.
I just tried again with 2.0.43, and still it won't work.

I did a quick and dirty workaround:

Action cat-pdf /cgi-bin/cat-pdf.sh
AddHandler cat-pdf .pdf

cat-pdf.sh is a simple shell script:

#!/bin/sh

echo "Content-Type: application/pdf\r";
echo "\r";
exec /bin/cat "$PATH_TRANSLATED"


Apparently as now no timestamp info is passed, acrobat is convinced into
not requesting byte ranges. However, this is just a workaround and the
bug in Apache is real.

Apart from this, no big problems with 2.0.40 + PHP4.2.2, perhaps apart from
the fact that "apachectl restart" sometimes leaves the server inoperative for
up to 20 minutes(!), apparently some child process hangs around too long.
"apachectl graceful" works fine.
