I don't know about the above settings.
Apart from what Chuck mentioned, what is the setting, in the Apache 
httpd configuration, of the KeepAliveTimeout ?

If you set that to 30 seconds, then it means that after the browser sent 
the last request that it is ever going to send, Apache will maintain the 
connection with the browser for 30 seconds, waiting for another request 
that will never come.
That probably means that it will also maintain the connection with 
Tomcat, and thus that Tomcat will keep the corresponding thread waiting 
for the same time, all for nothing.
Set KeepAliveTimeout to 3 for example, and see what happens.
