After converting to mod_jk and finding that it didn't fix the problem, I 
reverted back to mod_jserv and have made a patch to the tomcat code for the 
ajp12 adapter. This will send the response back the same way that JServ used 
to and allow apache to handle the response "nativly"

The change is in I simply added this method in the 
inner class AJP12ResponseAdapter:

    public void endHeaders() throws IOException {
        if (status >= 400) {
            sout.write("Status: ".getBytes());
            sout.write(" ".getBytes());
            sout.write(ResponseImpl.getMessage( status ).getBytes());
            sout.write("\r\nServlet-Error: ".getBytes());
            sout.write(ResponseImpl.getMessage( status ).getBytes());
        } else {

I realize this is not the most efficient way of doing it but I think it should 
be safe since there typically is not any "action" associated with responses 
over 400. If this is the case I would greatly appreciate if someone could fold 
this into the main code base.
