all (tested under Linux2)
  When Apache is confronted with a request like "TRACE" or
  "TRACE foobar" (followed by carriage returns) he outputs
  that request in the next line _wihtout_ any headers (eg. no
  'Content-Type: message/http').
  Although the two mentioned requests are a little bogus the
  Apache should output a correct header in response to the
  TRACE request or at least a 'Bad Request' response should
  be returned to the client.

Two possible solutions (as already mentioned above):
- reply with a correct header including ('Content-Type: message/http')
- reply with a 'Bad Request' messag
