Which client is seeing the problem?  Does disabling compression on the
client fix the problem?  Try something like:

   --config-option servers:global:http-compression=no 

I assume you have mod_deflate enabled on the server, can you show us the
server configuration?  Which version of httpd?  Does disabling
mod_deflate on the server fix the problem?
