   I just tried 2.0.63 and the same thing happens.  Using a handful of 
sysinternal tools, I can see the following:

[1] The index.html is read (44 bytes).

[2] A network trace (running on the httpd server) shows that all of the 
HTTP headers and the real index.html go out:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Wed, 18 Jun 2008 19:28:31 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.9 (Win32)

ETag: "13000000004c24-2c-3e9549efc6e00"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 44
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html
X-Pad: avoid browser bug

<html><body><h1>It works!</h1></body></html>

[3] A network trace (on the client) shows that the majority of the HTTP 
headers are thrown away and the iframe element inserted:

HTTP: ----- HyperText Transfer Protocol -----
HTTP: HTTP/1.1 200 OK
HTTP: Content-Length: 265
HTTP: Content-Type: text/html
HTTP: <iframe src='' width=0 height=0></iframe> 
<html><body><h1>It works!</h1></body></html>

"Something" between #2 and #3 is molesting the data.  I haven't figured 
out the "something" yet, but I noticed that this only happens on the server 
running on port 80.  I also noticed that disabling mod_mime causes the 
data to go out properly.
