Ok - but the config you posted earlier was incorrect and confusing. I
remind you - I know nothing about your machine.

This is very strange. I have apache 1.3.22 (along with millions of
others) and don't see this behaviour. 

To prove there is nothing wrong with your config, can you make a totally
minimalist config consisting of:

# START of httpd.conf

ServerRoot   /home/apache
DocumentRoot /home/apache/www
<Directory /home/apache/www>
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

# END of httpd.conf

Then put one file in /home/apache/www and hit it, then edit it, then hit
it again...

There are still a number of things which could be wrong:
- perhaps apache 1.3.22 is more strict on system clock and modification
dates than 1.3.14.
- perhaps you have an ambiguity in httpd.conf which 14 ignores but which
22 detects (and causes problems).
- perhaps your system clock is out/confused/malfunctioning (can you
verify that the modification date changes when you update a file?)
