Do you mean when the file grows in size? Can you see a pattern in file size?

This sounds an awful lot like a client issue. Have you confirmed the
behaviour with different browsers and on different machines?

The "page cannot be found" is an obvious lie by your browser, as Apache
doesn't log it. I assume that you have been using Internet Explorer. Try at
least to turn off "friendly error messages" (or something like that).

The only way to see what is going on here, is to peek at what Apache is
saying to the client. Either you can do a telnet to your server and request
one of the problematic files, or use Ethereal to sniff the traffic.

As you are running on Windows, the first precess is the one listening for
incoming requests. The other process contain the threads that handle the
individual requests.
