The proxy is a simple gateway - it passes whatever it gets to the
backend, and passes whatever reply back to the browser as is without
modification - through the byterange filter. As a result should a
backend server handle the range request, Apache will try to do it as
well, resulting in a range of a range.

Where the proxy will need to handle range requests is to support REST in
the ftp module. This is how I found the problem.
