Do you using a real server (made out of hardware) or a virtual one like vserver?

Yes. You can find the German thread here: http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?t=824

To summarize the thread you've to set

enablesendfile off

in your httpd.conf.

But I don't know exactly if it's working in your context.

Sorry, yes of course. I only wanted to point out it's not something I "know". I just read it there.

I'm not sure but I assume the sendfile support in virtual servers is broken. Sendfile let the kernel directly transmit a file without the help of a user process. In case of a virtual server this could be problematic to implement. Just a guess.
