I don't expect that to fix the -53 problem, but the behaviour of the
timeouts will be more consistent.

Aha. Maybe there are two different things, the 53 problem and the fact,
that your clients are not able to retrieve even static content, although
apache thinks it has delivered the content. For the second problem it
could be interesting to check, if this observation holds true, even if
you try to receive a static page from a client not included in your
click test.

Do I remember correctly, that Apache and Tomcat are on the same machine?
Is there a firewall on this machine?

The file might get big. I could download from a web site or similar.
I'll be away for two days, so don't expect an answer before friday.
