I don't believe this has anything to do with apache? I think what ever you are 
using to create your site is creating the frames, to allow it to do some of 
the other effects. Seaside seems to be the culprit on my reading of the source.

Also as I understand it, the proxy location has to be a real alternative site 
publicly accessible. I get localhost:9090 can not be found when I try to 
follow links to your own other pages. privacy/legal works because it's not 
being mapped to loaclhost:9090

My own website is on a local machine with a fixed IP address, but until I had properly mapped in DNS everybody kept seeing the IP address 
much like you are getting. I think that you should be using in the proxy so that apache returns that rather than 
the ip address.

I stand to be corrected as I'm still learning myself ;)
