I suspect it's an Adobe Reader plugin issue more than an httpd issue. I 
have seen it on a few sites when loading pdfs in the plugin.

As you know, it doesn't impact the content directly, only the viewing of 
it. I have seen it where an 87 page pdf only had 1 page in the plugin, 
and nothing visible on the page. :\

I think all you can do until Adobe fixes the plugin is to put a message 
on the site letting visitors know it may happen and how to be able to 
access the contents. [ save it to disk then open it in the full reader 
app usually best option. ]
