Whenever I name a directory as "examples" in my development sites, I receive a Error 503 Service unavailable page.
For example: http://mysite.loc/examples/
In using Drupal examples module, http://drupal.loc/examples/ajax_example/simplest causes same error.
I have tested this on several of my local sites and whenever I use a directory named "examples" an error is thrown.
My virtualhosts are all set up correctly and work fine.
Apache error log shows nothing.
The local site error log shows:

[Sat Feb 19 08:34:50 2011] [error] proxy: AJP: failed to make connection to backend: 127.0.0.1
If the directory is renamed to "example" everything works fine. Anyone have any ideas? I'm thinking it has something to do with Tomcat and it's examples directory. I do not use Tomcat though.
