 This is almost certainly not an Apache problem.  There are various network
 related issues that can cause it.  You may want to upgrade your kernel
 (don't track Linux kerenel versions, don't know if the one you have is
 buggy or not; all too many are).
 Please do something like a:
 	tcpdump host virtweb4.mis.net and host remote.site and port 80
 while trying to access the page from remote.site (change the name
 obviously) and mail me the output. This will give a dump of what the
 server is trying to send.  It is probably something like some router not
 liking packets over a certain size or formed in a certain way.  I think
 the data you are seeing it with is just a coincidence.  Try a different
 page with the same formatting but completely different text; can you
 reproduce it there?
