I have had exactly this problem with my (Apache) server when I
upgraded from the CERN daemon. Apparently, if you had a file:
http://www.dundee.ac.uk/uodhome.html
then the URI
http://www.dundee.ac.uk/uodhome
would give the same results with CERN - but not Apache. (Reasonable,
as the latter is wrong, but the users complain...) Including
mod_speling fixes this, along with making URI's case-insensitive, but
so does telling people to get the URI right.

That should solve the problem - it did for me.
