Hmmm... do you have any extra input filters configured?

I don't know what would be different between our tests...  More
information about mine:

default_handler() was used to generate the response

it calls ap_discard_request_body() which calls
ap_get_client_block(,,8K) in a loop 

no input filters beyond those added automatically to implement HTTP
