That's not actually what I asked (many CGI implementations would
give the same).  But it's probably enough to go on: a recent-
enough apache release, probably prefork, and probably mod_cgi
(any Ubuntu folks here know whether it could be something
different without the server admin having made a conscious choice)?

Quick sanity checks:

(1) if your test script just reads to EOF, does it get the right
     (de-chunked) inputs?
(2) does it fail with any reasonably-standard CGI library?
