Is this a problem?  I ask because a very similar issue has come up  
recently in the
context of mod_deflate and HEAD requests, and it would be good to  
know if it's
causing real problems.

Since it seems to be a change in mod_jk, you should probably ask the  
tomcat folks,
who maintain it.  Though some of them are also httpd folks and may  
see it here.
