That's a slightly different story.  2.1 has the fix for this (proxy_http.c 
r1.166), but it never got back ported to 2.0.

2.0's STATUS says:
 * Rewrite how proxy sends its request to allow input bodies to
   morph the request bodies.  Previously, if an input filter
   changed the request body, the original C-L would be sent which
   would be incorrect.

   Due to HTTP compliance, we must either send the body T-E: chunked
   or include a C-L for the request body.  Connection: Close is not
   an option. [jerenkrantz    2002/12/08 21:37:27]

At this date (about 20 months later), I have no earthly idea what was 
wrong.  But, I'd suggest trying httpd-2.0 HEAD (aka httpd-2.1) and see if 
that fixes it.  Perhaps someone can remember why I agreed with Brian and 
what I never fixed...  ;-)  -- justin
