Just a thought, but have you tried to replicate the problem when using
haproxy (with the example configs provided on basho's site)?
That might let you discover if the problem really IS with Apache, or
if it's something to do with your Riak config instead.

I know I am missing some config value in here but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what it is. Does anyone have an example config they could through up?

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world
