If you send the headers yourself, as, eg,
    print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
in the script, then you should have
    PerlOptions +ParseHeaders 
in the relevant section. If you don't send the header yourself,
Apache will send one for you, based on, in particular, the
DefaultType setting. In this case you shouldn't have
    PerlOptions +ParseHeaders
in that section. As you found, other combinations can lead
to a double set of headers sent, resulting in one of
them appearing in the browser.
