How about APR? The changelog includes following information in 7.0.27:

"Update the native component of the Tomcat APR/native connector to 
1.1.23 and take advantage of the simplified distribution. (mturk) "

The initial thread starter reported to use <Connector 
protocol="HTTP/1.1" ... >

If the autodetection finds the neccessary tcnative-lib we might search 
for a change in the APR. At the end of last year there was CVE-2011-3192 
for a vulnerability in httpd and HTTP range requests.

Maybe one should test protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol" 
vs. protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11AprProtocol" to ensure 
which implementation causes this problem.
