Only thing I can think of is: if you change the TimeOut in your
default (first-listed) named-based vhost, and test the timeout by
seeing how long apache will  wait to read request headers, it would
look like the more specific TimeOuts are not being used.  This is the
case for a handful of directives that operate extremely early on the
request info (LimitRequest*, AllowEncodedSlashes, Timeout).
