Hmmm, I seemed to have missed the OP.

Have you run any diagnostics on where the request gets truncated?
For example, does it look like about 8Kb that gets through?
Or could it be that there's something like a Content-Length header
that's wrong but that either Apache or Tomcat is honouring
(e.g. Content-Length set to the size of compressed contents and
wrong after decompression somewhere between client and app)?
