I'm not confused when apache is starting to count.

I looked up the RFC for HTTP 1.1 and found the following:

8.1.4 Practical Considerations

 Servers SHOULD NOT close a connection in the
   middle of transmitting a response, unless a network or client failure
   is suspected.

8.2.1 Persistent Connections and Flow Control

   HTTP/1.1 servers SHOULD maintain persistent connections and use TCP's
   flow control mechanisms to resolve temporary overloads, rather than
   terminating connections with the expectation that clients will retry.
   The latter technique can exacerbate network congestion.

As I read the text apache is not following the RFC and closes the connection in
the middle of a transmition of a response.
