mod_ext_filter doesn't need to know how to handle byterange requests,
there is a filter to do that.  Are you using the acrobat plug-in with
IE?  If so, you are definately making a byterange request.  What platform
is your Apache server on?  I'll try to debug this this weekend, but I am
strapped for time.  Please file a bug report at
