I don't see any direct way this could happen.  Some thoughts:

1. OpenBSD's "apache" is somewhat-heavily patched based on an obsolete
version and therefore might do any number of things different from
regular apache.  So you might need to consult with OpenBSD lists for
problems with that server.

2. Try tracing the communication on the line and see what is going on.
 Exactly what host is the proxy requesting?  Is there a redirect
