Unfortunately, I have never looked at the sources and patches used on 
ubuntu.  I would suggest looking at the patches they include with their 
source installation.  I think that would be a very good place to start.  
Additionally, debugging tools (e.g. gdb) might be a very good place to 
start.  Your hints for the day :  run "gdb httpd" (or whatever binary is 
used to start it, make sure you use the BINARY and not an init script), 
and then at the gdb prompt, enter "run -X" - this starts the binary in a 
single-instance mode.  Point the browser to it and generate the 
"errors".  Then type "bt" to get a back trace.  Outside of that and 
looking at the patches, I am unable to help.
