You may want to look at *exactly* what headers are being sent back and
forth, not just what the logs are telling you.  If you have mod_perl
installed, a relatively trivial connection-level filter should do the
trick.  I suspect there are pre-packaged modules to do this too, but I
don't know of them.

However, I suspect that the problem is not with the server, but with
the client.  I would strongly suggest you search the Microsoft
knowledge base at
(Note that you'll have to use IE, because none of the links work in
Firefox, the bastards.)  I would perform the search for you, except
that I don't have the exact error messages or versions of the products
