You don't mention exactly what version of 1.3, but I know that some 1.3 
versions are strictly HTTP/1.0 proxies, and other versions are HTTP/1.1 
on the server end but HTTP/1.0 on the server end.  I'm not sure about 
the most recent version, since I haven't tested it.

Apache 2.0, on the other hand, is HTTP/1.1 on both sides of the proxie. 
  So you might consider upgrading and seeing if that fixes the problem.
