I'm not an expert in this, but my understanding is that, for performance
and complexity reasons, apache does not dechunk input.  And since it is
assumed that cgi scripts themselves will not be able to handle chunked
encoding, mod_cgi rejects chunked input entirely.

1.3.9 in ancient, in any case.  You should really upgrade.
