I have experienced the same problem with Apache 2.2.0 on Solaris 2.8.  Would not
have found a solution if not for this report.  I have found that while I get a
blank index returned in MS IE 6 on Win2k, Netscape 7.1 in Win2k and Firefox 1.5
on Solaris 8, if I telnet into the server and GET a directory, the properly
formatted index is returned.  I can also get a properly formatted index by
connecting with Netscape 4.76 on Solaris or Win2k.  I worked around the problem
using SSI with an shtml file containing only an include for a file containing
the original content of my HeaderName file and another for my ReadmeName file. 
The problem is exhibited with a ReadmeName file over 255 bytes as well.
