Joe, thanks for the patch.  I'll apply it and see if it helps.

One last followup question, though.  It seems like there must be tons of 
sites in the world doing what I'm doing - serving a large amount of 
downloads.  And probably most of those sites are running Apache, and 
probably a lot of them are using Apache 2.0.x .  How is it that they don't 
seem to have the same problem?  If this bug has survived in Apache 2 this 
long, it must be fairly obscure.  Is there some unique set of circumstances 
that is causing this bug to affect only me and a few others, and not a large 
number of other Apache servers?

Thanks again.
